Planning & Highways

Our solicitors represent and advise landowners and developers on planning law, including planning applications, planning appeals, planning agreements and compulsory purchase orders. We can also help with highways law, public footpaths and traffic orders.

Working with the local highway authorities

We work alongside local highway authorities (Highways England) on issues involving the Highways Act 1980. This includes the stopping up and diversion of highways for developers and dealing with public rights of way.
