Planning issues frequently impact on residential conveyancing and commercial development C&J Black has extensive experience in dealing with issues ranging from applications, planning agreements, objections, applications to the Planning Appeals Commission and judicial reviews.

Additionally, many commercial and infrastructure projects engage the application of European instruments, such as the Environmental Impact Assessment Habitats Directive and the Strategic Environmental Assessment Directives.

We have successfully brought important judicial reviews involving the application of all of these Directives.

We also act in appropriate cases, for objectors to major infrastructure projects and through these cases have had a significant impact in the recent development of the law in Northern Ireland in this area, and including the use of Protective Costs Orders through cases such as:-

Re Friends of the Earth [2006] NIQB 48
Re Thompson’s Application [2010] 38
Re Alternative A5 Alliance [2012] NIQB 97
Re Alternative A5 Alliance [2013] NIQB 30
