If your property rights are affected by a proposed development, we can assist in lodging your observation (objection) to that planning application. We also advise on the next steps if the application is granted, whether that be through an appeal to An Bord Pleanala or by way of application to the courts known as Judicial Review to challenge the legality of the planning decision. The costs of such an action can be prohibitive for most people but there are certain cost protections now for applicants in certain instances and we can advise you on this process and whether it applies in your case.
KM Solicitors have expertise in planning law, advising a range of clients on observations to local authorities, appeals to An Bord Pleanála, judicial reviews, planning injunctions and defending planning enforcement proceedings. We can provide you with legal advice on how to proceed if your land is
subject to a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO). We will advise you on and liaise with the requisite experts that need to be engaged on your behalf to ensure you are adequately compensated for the land subject to the CPO.
In certain circumstances the legality of the CPO may be subject to legal challenge. We have specialist knowledge in these types of actions known as Judicial Reviews.
