Town & Country Planning

Judicial Review Solicitors

If a development has been granted or refused planning permission and you feel aggrieved at the decision, you have the right to ask the courts whether that decision was lawful.

The planning specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler have a huge amount of experience and knowledge regarding judicial reviews and will be able to advise if you have grounds for a case.

Head of planning, David Brammer, is a legal associate of the Royal Town Planning Institute and has been involved in numerous court cases concerning the planning issues involved in applications for judicial review.

Please get in touch with our friendly and approachable solicitors for advice about judicial reviews - it may seem daunting, but they will be able to talk you through the process in Plain English, and will support you every step of the way.


Legal processes can seem very complicated and confusing, which is why we keep our approach simple. Our planning specialists will offer clear and concise legal advice to help you decide what action is appropriate, without overloading you with information.

  • Obtaining the desired results in a cost effective manner.
