To get planning permission, local authorities require the applicant to enter into a planning obligation either by agreement or undertaking. Without this document planning permission will not be granted. We help developers, landowners, banks and other interested parties with this process.
We have drafted and agreed numerous planning obligations for development proposals large and small. We provide commercial advice and are proactive where required.
We are particularly experienced in complicated, multi-party agreements for large scale developments. We understand the relationship between planning obligations and Community Infrastructure Levy.
Members of our team have been employed in development, so understand the issues and pressures in dealing with these agreements. We are also experienced in providing obligations to support planning appeals.
