It is very important that you seek advice at the earliest possible stage, in order that our barristers can help to prepare your case as thoroughly as possible.

If you have a Planning claim, please contact us as soon as possible in the process so that we can help you to get a legal opinion from a specialise Planning barrister.

A Planning barrister can help you with a wide range of property and planning related issues. Whether you are considering making a planning application and require specialist planning advice, or whether you have already submitted a planning application and have come across difficulties, our planning barristers will be able to help you. If you want to object to a planning application in your local area, or even want to apply for Judicial Review of a planning matter, our planning barristers can assist you with this as well.

Judicial Review of a Planning Application Decision

In order to seek a Judicial Review of a planning matter, there are several criteria that must first be met. Your barrister can discuss eligibility in greater detail, but at the very least you must be an interested party, or a sufficiently suitable representative or group that represents interested parties as a collective, directly related to the planning issue. You must also have exhausted all other avenues of claim or appeal, prior to seeking Judicial Review.

It is also important to note, that a Judicial Review may not result in the planning being stopped - it may merely refer it back to the planning committee, to reconsider the decision; often requiring them to take factors into account that may have been missed initially, or alternatively, to reconsider the decision without giving consideration to issues that were part of the original decision process.

For further information, and for any other planning matters, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free, no-obligation initial consultation to determine how our planning barristers may assist you.
