How can we help?
Expert navigation of the Scottish planning process at both national and local level is central to achieving your development objective. We don’t just bring in-depth knowledge of the regulatory law and process but also a rigorous approach to local dynamics and how they impact on a project programme. Across the property development sector, our accredited town planners have delivered winning planning submissions through detailed knowledge backed by advocacy skills. A wealth of experience negotiating and drafting section 75 agreements allows us to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.
Scotland’s development management programme aims to protect the natural and historic environment and ensure that our natural resources are exploited sustainably. Knowledge of how the development consenting process protects such important elements is key to delivering projects viably and on time. That’s why we have invested heavily in developing our skills in consenting, environmental regulation, historic building, wildlife, habitat and climate change issues. Combining comprehensive knowledge with advocacy skills allows us to support fast and efficient delivery of all the consents needed to realise the completed development.
Across a sector still recovering from the financial crash, our team of experts and accredited specialists advise on all aspects and stages in the construction process. Their expertise encompasses procurement, building regulations, SBCC, JCT contract and finance, and completion with full marketable warranties, performance bonds and guarantees. The balance between contentious and non-contentious solicitors in our team ensures we can meet client demand and deliver results no matter how choppy the waters.
