The planning system plays an important role in helping protect the environment and the outlook of our villages, towns and cities. The planning authority has a wide range of powers and therefore it is important to ensure you do not fall foul of any relevant planning legislation.  There are various circumstances in which planning consent is required from small scale extensions to the large wholesale development of solar farms and wind turbines. 

Further aspects of planning to consider include community rights under the Localism Act 2011, and the more contentious side of planning such as receiving unwanted planning notices affecting your local area.

At Chubb Bulleid we are well versed in dealing with a variety of planning issues and offer an initial free half hour iconsultation to discuss your precise requirements.

Our services in this complex area ensure that whether you wish to make an application, or object to an ongoing notice, your view is expressed in the best possible light and complies with all the relevant planning policy guidelines.

  • Guidance on Local Planning Policy
