Professional Planning Specialists

On behalf of Attwaters Jameson Hill posted on Thursday, January 12th, 2017

When you have important planning issues to resolve, it pays to have a specialist town & country planning team on your side. Unlike many firms, we recognise that planning is a distinct area within the law and is best serviced by specialist lawyers who work solely in this area rather than relying on general commercial property lawyers.
