Planning

 
Public Law Solicitors provides a specialist public law planning service. We have experience in acting for community/residents groups who seek to challenge polluting or intrusive developments.

Most of these challenges are brought by way of judicial review or statutory planning appeal in the High Court. We also provide advice and representation in connection with the preparation of planning, village green and compulsory purchase order (CPO) inquiries.

These are some of the case that we have been involved with:-

  • Challenge to the process of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in relation to the disposal of waste at a major power station.
  • A challenge to listed building and conservation order consent arising from a major inner city road development.
  • A challenge to the grant of an extended pub licence on the basis of the failure of the regulating body to consider the interface with the planning regime.
  • A challenge to a failure by a developer to notify neighbouring land owners before seeking planning permission.
  • A challenge to a compulsory purchase order in respect of a major city centre development.
  • A challenge to the re-development of a housing estate on human rights grounds.
