Building on firm foundations.

Planning and Construction

Sometimes planning and construction are included under the property law umbrella, they shouldn’t be.  The successful management of planning and construction matters demands a very specific set of skills and experience.     

When it comes to planning and construction our lawyers have acted for a long list of public authorities, developers and private clients across a wide range of projects and their appearances before the Royal Court in connection with some of Jersey’s largest developments are well documented.


If you are looking at obtaining planning permission, we can advise you and represent you at every stage of the planning process.  We will ensure you have the best possible chance of securing the permissions you want as well as providing any additional assistance you need with planning appeals, and planning applications.

We are also ready to act quickly and decisively to settle any disputes that might arise between you and any neighbours or co-owners.


If you are looking to get a construction project off the ground we can review or draft your building contracts and collateral warranties.

Also, because of the depth of our construction experience, we can also advise you on project administration, risk management and how best to finance upcoming project as well as offer guidance on the operational and facilities management contracts that will underpin your project.

If you need any advice regarding planning permission or a construction project regarding commercial leases and licences, please contact Wendy Lambert or call us on +44 (0) 1534 760 860.

If you are facing a dispute involving planning or construction please contact David Benest.
