Rural Team

The rural team provides specialist planning advice to:

  • Landowners of major rural estates.
  • Farmers seeking alternative uses for their landholdings and buildings.
  • Housebuilders and other developers considering development of land at the urban fringe.
  • Other development in the open countryside.

Rural Team Services

Our core planning services include:

  • A planning assessment of the prospects of obtaining planning permission
  • Acting as the planning manager to lead the planning negotiations and to co-ordinate other specialist consultants.
  • If necessary acting as the expert planning witness at a planning appeal as well as directly instructing Counsel.
  • We undertake all applications that add value – ranging from varying agricultural occupancy conditions enabling occupation of farm buildings for non-agricultural uses, to large scale estate development strategies.
  • Working with our historic buildings and archaeology teams in the assessment of the impact of the development on the site’s heritage assets.
