If you've received a decision that refuses to grant you planning permission to develop your business property, then we can advise you on your rights and merits to appeal. We use our expertise to look at planning decisions and consider the right to challenge the High Court's adverse decisions by judicial review.

If you weren’t aware an extension that you or your predecessor built never received planning permission, we can advise on how to approach this issue. This may well prevent your property’s sale in the future, so ensuring that you have the correct paperwork is essential.

Without securing the planning permission, your property’s value is arguably impacted, as you could be at risk of service receiving an enforcement notice from the local council.

Get in touch with our leading team of commercial property dispute solicitors for initial advice. After we have analysed your case’s prospects, we will find a lawyer who can assist you throughout, keeping you up to date. Our Solicitors will aim to find a solution to your problems.

Frequently asked questions

I understand that an applicant has submitted a planning application to alter a property near me, how can I view the documents?

Most council websites have an online electronic planning portal that provides details of the plans and the process’s current stage. You should search on your local council’s website in the planning section for the planning portal. If you cannot find the information online, you should telephone your local council’s planning department for assistance.

I am not sure if I need to make a planning application. Is there any way I can check before submitting a full planning application?

Most councils will allow you to make a pre-application rather than bring an actual application. A planning officer will likely give their thoughts on your application during this process before you submit a full planning application.

How do I comment on a planning application?

Most councils allow you to submit comments online via their planning portals, even if you have not been formally notified of the application.

Alternatively, most councils will accept letters with comments. It is advisable to leave details of your name and contact address so that you can be contacted.
