Planning & the Environment

Clients of Clarke Willmott LLP praise its ‘excellent level of service and approachable team’.The Legal 500 2016

Planning is at the forefront of economic growth and recent years have seen a stream of radical changes not witnessed since the modern planning system was introduced after World War II.  In such a rapidly changing environment, being able to rely on your legal adviser is critical, especially as these areas of the law can be a minefield.  What sets us apart and continues to bring clients back to us time and time again is our consistent ability to deliver timely commercial advice and to solve, rather than create, planning problems.  We aim to provide experienced practitioners to sit alongside clients and to guide them through the complexities of the planning system.

It is not always obvious that there is an environmental issue that needs to be addressed.  You may have acquired or be acquiring a contaminated site that requires remediation or you may need an environmental permit or other consent to operate your business lawfully without fear of criminal proceeding.  Waste, pollution control, minerals and landfill are all areas which are heavily regulated by both European and UK laws which are continually evolving and we provide advice to help keep you one step ahead of the game.
