Planning is probably the most important stage in any project – be it a redevelopment or a new building.  Both large and small projects will impact upon the local community, existing and future infrastructure and need careful planning and expert legal guidance.

Local Expertise – National Reach

Being in the heart of Birmingham, in the Jewellery Quarter, which is undergoing a property development boom, we have a great deal of experience of working in partnership with developers of all sizes on a wide variety of projects.  Some of these are very local, but many are for larger developers working across the UK.

Sehgal aim to provide a single source of advice to developers we work with regularly, taking a proactive approach so adding value where we can.

Planning and Partnering

We have experience in giving advice to both the private and public sector organisations such as local authorities, developers and contractors of all sizes. Projects we have worked on range from small listed buildings to large regeneration projects. Whatever the size and nature of the project, we make sure you get commercial planning advice and the legal support you need to resolve any issues.

We promote a partnering approach to property development as we aim to build up relationships with developers.  This means we can give maximum value by introducing our clients to opportunities we come across in areas we know well, such as Birmingham City Centre and the fast-developing Jewellery Quarter.

Clear, Practical Advice

Our planning team will give you clear, practical advice helping you to navigate the maze of potential issues and face any challenges.

Examples of problems & issues you made need to manage include:

  • Conservation & Listed Buildings
  • Tree preservation and wildlife requirements
  • Planning agreements and planning obligations
  • Highways agreements
  • Judicial reviews
  • Legal support at public hearings and inquiries
  • Enforcement Site assembly – compulsory purchase orders

Planning is just one of the services we offer, as we think we offer be a one-stop shop for all property matters.  This has made Sehgal one of the most popular choices for developers, contractors and investors in the West Midlands and beyond.
