Planning and environmental law has a significant impact on how land is used. Ultimately it affects the value of the land in a very fundamental way. This is a complex area in which the right strategy will make all the difference. Key to the successful navigation of the UK planning system is a thorough understanding of exactly what you wish to achieve.

Our planning law services

Keystone’s planning lawyers deal with individuals seeking advice on their own residential property arrangements and also commercial operators looking to exploit the value of land they control. Both parties benefit from our experience of the inner workings of public authorities and relevant statutory bodies, plus our lawyers’ commercial awareness, foresight and sector expertise.
