Planning disputes

In planning matters, legal advice early in the stages of work is crucial, to ensure the efficient progress of your proposed development. Longton Legal is able to assist across the various stages of a proposed development, as well as offer legal representation, in the event of any disputes with the local council.

The majority of development, environmental and planning disputes are heard in the NSW Land and Environment Court, which is governed by the provisions of the Land and Environment Court Act 1979 (NSW).

If you have been refused development consent for a proposed development or have not been provided with a development consent in a timely fashion, our lawyers can assist you with a planning dispute in the Land and Environment Court, against the local council. If you decide to obtain legal representation, it is something that you should do quickly, to ensure that your matter is commenced in the right Court and/or in the right jurisdiction. Such disputes often involve multiple expert witnesses, including traffic consultants, town planners, engineers, arborists as well as other experts. It is critical, in such matters, that you have the right legal representation, to assist you.

Our commercial litigation lawyers can assist litigants before the Land and Environment Court and can appear for clients in Land and Environment Court matters, with or without counsel (barristers) assisting, depending on the complexity of the matter.
