Philip Hodges - Planning consultant
My specialist Town and Country Planning Practice was established in 1989 drawing from 20 years previous experience as a solicitor responsible for several local planning authorities since 1969 – latterly as Solicitor to Stroud District Council from its formation in 1974 until 1989.
Our client base ranges from individual one man and one off developers through to established development companies and local authorities.
The categories of work for which we are most often commissioned are –
• Planning Appeals
• Planning Enforcement
• Listed Buildings
• S.106 Planning Agreements
• Certificates of Lawful Existing (and Proposed) Use and Development
• Representations in support of or opposing planning applications
Our success rate on planning appeals is currently almost double that indicated by national statistics.
