With the political debate over planning laws ongoing and the discussion on residential development and commercial development more prominent than ever, the planning system continues to evolve.

Assisting you with the Planning Process

For property owners wishing to protect their investment, the almost revolutionary pace of change in recent years makes the navigation of town and country planning laws difficult and confusing. When mistakes are made in the procedure they are difficult and expensive to rectify.

With so much at stake, it’s vital to have expert lawyers on your side that you can trust. That’s why we make a Service Pledge to each and every one of our clients: our promise to you that we will always be transparent, communicative and highly proactive when dealing with your matter, to ensure we leave no stone unturned and no room for mistakes.

Confronting the Obstacles to Development

Attwaters Jameson Hill in Hertford has been providing workable solutions to the obstacles presented by town and country planning laws for over 40 years. We are always on top of the ever-changing technicalities. With decades of experience to draw on, we have the capacity to stand back, take the long view of your situation and rigorously explore all the options.

What We Do

  • Advice for private clients – We advise individuals and businesses on all aspects of planning applications and appeals, and regularly advise clients on planning appeals before the Planning Inspectorate.
  • Advice for developers – We are often charged with advising developers who have had a planning application refused by the local authority. When a development has begun we provide ongoing support in relation to disputes over the discharge of planning conditions. We provide legal advice on Section 106 and Section 278 Agreements and the interpretation of the CIL Regulation
  • Advice for planning authorities – Having acted for planning authorities for many years, we understand the internal workings of such organisations. We provide specialist advice to local authorities on all aspects of the Town and Country Planning Act.
  • Planning Consultants and Architects – We advise all planning professionals on any element of their projects where legal input is required. This includes Section 106 Agreements, Section 278 Agreements and legal advice on Planning Appeals, Enforcement Appeals and Planning Applications. Read more here Expert Planning Law advice
