Planning Solicitors, Planning Lawyers, Procurement Solicitors, Procurement Lawyers
Summerfield Browne Solicitors are planning solicitors authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We are a modern and progressive law firm, and we use cutting edge technology in the delivery and provision of legal services, which significantly reduces our overheads, and which means we offer very competitive fee rates. Why not call us for a fee quote today?
What distinguishes us from many other planning lawyers, is that we deliver legal services by combining the best aspects of the traditional law firm, with a flexible consultancy based legal services model. This means that many of our procurement lawyers are consultants, who work remotely, and by using the latest IT and legal technology, can deliver fast and effective legal services. Our business model means that clients have the option of choosing either, remote delivery of legal services which is simple, effective and cost efficient, or alternatively, the more traditional delivery of legal services via meetings in person at either, our serviced offices, or at the client's business premises.
With the exception of our administrative headquarters, we only use serviced offices for basic needs, such as telephone answering and mail receipt. Any additional fees for meetings are only incurred on an "as and when" used basis, which means that we do not incur many of the significant property overheads, which are incurred by other more traditional law firms.
Our planning and procurement solicitors provide the following services:
Applying for Planning Consent – Our planning solicitors advise on a wide range of planning matters including applications for planning consent in accordance with local and national regulations and guidelines. We draft presentational material for submission to Local Planning Authorities, and also attend planning committee meetings in support of an application.
Appealing Refusal for Planning Consent – If your planning application has been refused then our planning lawyers can assist. We can advise on the various strategies to appeal planning consent refusal including, High Court challenges to planning appeal decisions, judicial review of other actions and decisions by local planning authorities, and public inquiries.
