Rix & Kay has dedicated planning law expertise. Our technical know-how allows us to support landowners, developers and other planning professionals by giving them legal insight, and practical solutions to planning law problems.
Planning law expert Oliver Bussell specialises in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious planning and especially all aspects of Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. Oliver advises in negotiations with local authorities both pre-grant and at appeal on bilateral agreements as well as unilateral undertakings – a good understanding of the law in this area can make a huge difference to the success of applications. He can also advise on restructuring of existing planning obligations by deed of variation as well as the use of appeal mechanisms where a local planning authority refuses to vary.
Oliver’s other planning law work includes:
- compliance reviews of planning applications
- advice on appeal prospects
- instructing counsel and assembling project teams at appeal
- opposing designations of land as Ancient Monument and Asset of Community Value
- acting for objectors in resisting proposals
He also advises clients on planning enforcement issues including routes and prospects of appeal and responses and challenges to statutory notices.
