DWD’s planning team are privileged to work on some of the most interesting planning projects in the UK, from major low carbon and carbon capture power stations and solar farms to urban extensions and major regeneration projects. We advise our clients from early inception, scheme development and securing permission, through to amendments to permissions and discharge of planning conditions.
We are one of the leading teams in understanding the processes and nuances of decision-making authorities under the different UK consenting regimes, including DCO applications and Town and Country Planning. In collaboration with our property team, DWD’s expertise also enables us to advise on the viability and development economic aspects of planning.
Our clients see the value of having a strong planning consultancy on board from the outset, it helps to ensure that valuable due diligence is undertaken as well as understanding a site’s planning history, identifying any restrictive conditions, and undertaking important checks to spot any potential situations which would impact the future stages of a project.
