Planning Law Specialists

Advising upon major infrastructure projects and more complicated negotiations is our forte but we are experienced in all aspects of planning law and policy. In the latest rankings within Chambers UK 2019, Walton & Co has been ranked as a leading firm. In addition, a significant part of our practice is advising upon highway and transportation matters, which may often form pre-conditions to the commencement of development. Compulsory purchase law and compensation form an increasing proportion of our work, where we often work with clients' retained property and agricultural lawyers and surveyors.   We also advise local and public authorities including Parish Councils upon planning related administrative issues.
