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).
Clarke Jeffers have specialised in planning and environmental law for over 15 years. In that time we have advised private individuals, businesses, developers and wind energy companies. We provide a clear and rapid strategy for our clients to ensure the best chance of success.
For many years, we have worked with a great many construction companies in Ireland, representing a broad range of interests for developers, contractors, sub-contractors, construction professionals and others. Our successful track record of protecting the reputation and assets of our clients has meant we have forged long-term client relationships along the way. Whatever area of construction you are in, Clarke Jeffers can help.
The firm also has experience in larger planning objections, representing groups against the erection of wind turbine farms and composting / incineration units.
“Planning Law is basically a balancing of rights. Experience is what tips the scales.”
