The Becket Chambers Planning Team advise and represent local authorities and individuals in criminal and civil proceedings under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 in relation to breaches of planning control, enforcement notices, display of advertisements and ‘loss of amenity’ notices.
Our Barristers act for local authorities, developers and individuals involved in planning disputes. We will assist with advice in connection with planning applications, and also have extensive experience of undertaking planning inquiries and hearings, and appeals to enforcement proceedings (in either the criminal courts or as part of civil proceedings for injunctions and/or damages) in the High Court or County Court.
We have specialist knowledge of dealing with cases involving English Heritage, or properties with Listed Building status, and in assessing environmental impact of developments.
