  • Scrutinising the legality of the alleged breach
  • Providing a rebuttal to any inconsistent or incorrect allegations
  • Liaising with the Planning Authority to resolve outstanding matters
  • Preparation and submission of retrospective application
  • Advice on Lawful Development Certificates – existing and proposed and preparing planning application and supporting evidence.
