Developing a new site or seeking change of use?

Have you been served with a planning enforcement notice?

Getting planning permission for commercial or residential use is not always straightforward especially if there is a change of use, listed building status or environmental obstacles.

Observing the correct time limits, serving the right notices and complying with all the regulations are common hurdles to a successful application and should only be handled by those with particular expertise.

With Myers & Co Solicitors in Staffordshire, you can rest assured that you are in the very best of hands. Our planning law experts have worked on behalf of local authorities, property developers, small businesses and individuals providing the quickest route to planning permission approval.


Without the proper documentation your property development plans may well be jeopardised.
If your application for planning permission has been turned down, we can review the process and advise on your options for appealing against the decision.

If you are a landowner and affected by a proposed development on neighbouring land such as a wind farm, mobile phone mast or solar panels then we can help you fight against the decision.

We can also help you fight against compulsory purchase orders and restrictive covenants on your land.

Enforcement notices

If you have been served with a planning enforcement notice you will need to act quickly to protect your property. The local authority might threaten to demolish your development and you could be faced with a heavy financial penalty or even criminal prosecution if you do not comply.

We can advise you on a response to an enforcement notice and represent you at any appeal hearing.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, our commercial property lawyers have a reputation for providing accurate advice to commercial landowners, landlords and tenants throughout Staffordshire and South Cheshire. Contact our commercial property team on 01782 525000 or email us at info@myerssolicitors.co.uk.
