Druces for Business

Planning and Environment

Druces provides planning advice at all levels from planning agreements on major developments to background advice on routine property transactions. Our expertise also covers environmental and contaminated land issues.

We have particular experience in advising developers on the need for planning permission (or the validity of existing permission) and conditionality of contract to acquire land subject to planning permission.

We are also often instructed to advise occupiers on the validity of the planning permission for their proposed premises and funders regarding the planning permission upon which their borrowers seek to rely. Individual clients include those purchasers needing advice on the planning permission for their target property and people objecting to neighbours’ planning applications.
