Partner - Commercial Property

For more than three decades, Alan has specialised in helping clients to overcome the legal challenges involved in bringing forward strategic land for development and the development process itself. During this time, Alan has played an important role in many projects ranging from developments with a small number of units, to major urban expansion and redevelopment schemes.

Alan is skilled in drafting and settling the often complex documentation that is needed to guarantee a fair outcome for landowners, promoters and developers. He also takes a proactive approach to staying informed about national or local policy changes that can impact on the developments his clients are involved with.

Key Experience

Alan’s relevant experience includes:

  • acting for landowners acting on their own or with other landowners to secure a route to development in accordance with the Swindon Local Plan during the Local Plan period
  • acting for landowners in Surrey hoping to secure development in an area of outstanding natural beauty
  • restructuring arrangements for the promotion of land in west and south Swindon to gain a workable planning consent
  • acting on behalf of the two consortia of major developers in north Swindon on all infrastructure matters including the restructuring of planning obligations to suit the local planning authority and consortia
  • securing large upfront payments for landowners in several west Wiltshire towns, which allow them to continue using their land for agricultural purposes while ensuring they retain future development value
