A long-standing client of ours recently experienced neighbouring properties undertaking work without planning permission, and then making applications for further alterations to the buildlings. This led to concerns about loss of privacy, and we wrote to set out the case for permission to be refused, and investigations to be undertaken into breaches of planning control. The Council agreed with our case, refusing permission and opening enforcement investigations.
Client: private householder
We were involved in the recent Judicial Review of the issuing of a Special Development Order by the Home Secretary for the use of Napier Barracks in Kent to house aslyum seekers. We provided evidence for the Court, which ruled the decision to house refugees at the site was unlawful.
