Peter is an experienced planning solicitor and also a barrister, making him dual-qualified as a lawyer.  His planning expertise is underpinned by his experience as a planning consultant and qualifications in land use and arboriculture.

As a solicitor he has acted for a wide variety of clients in an equally wide variety of matters including planning applications and appeals, certificates of lawfulness, enforcement, change of use, permitted development, s.106 agreements, occupancy conditions, compulsory purchase, judicial review, highways and public rights of way and tree preservation orders.

Peter uses his extensive knowledge of planning law and procedures to adopt a results-orientated approach to planning problems and queries.  In particular he has considerable specialist expertise in localism and the new neighbourhood planning regime which, alongside other changes to the planning system, provide significant new opportunities for developers, landowners, householders, community groups and others to achieve their planning objectives.

As an outlet for his non-legal planning-related projects, Peter runs his own planning and public affairs consultancy, Planning Progress.
