We provide advice about appeal rights and procedures, and help clients through the planning appeal process where necessary.
We have specialist experience in managing environmental issues associated with project development, including compliance requirements and interrelated authorisations.
We regularly advise developers about site contamination risks and liabilities, including investigation and management obligations, site contamination audit requirements and transfer of liability.
