Since 1964 all significant development in this country has required planning permission (if not exempted by law). Planning applications are subject not only to the scrutiny of the local authority but also to public bodies and the public in general. We have worked with engineers and architects in the taking of and defence of planning objections and planning injunctions on behalf of our clients. We also have extensive experience in defending malicious objections (business competitor objections etc).

We provide specialist legal advice to business and commercial ventures and individuals on environmental law, commercial planning and building regulations together with representation at public hearings and An Bord Pleanála.
