Terra Firma Chambers is recognised as the leading Stable for planning matters at the Scottish Bar and remains the only Band 1 ranked set in Chambers & Partners UK Directory.
At Terra Firma, we know and understand the importance and potential impact of planning decisions. Whether for or against a proposed development or change of use, or considering questions of compensation for compulsory purchase, our counsel are able to provide comprehensive advice and representation at all levels in all relevant proceedings. We have some of Scotland’s leading counsel in this area of law, and frequently receive instructions on the highest profile and most complex cases.
Our counsel represent a wide range of client interests – landowners, developers, planning authorities and objectors - and act in relation to a wide variety of developments, including proposals for supermarkets, housing, roads, wind farms, and other energy developments, including offshore development. Our counsel are happy to advise and take instructions directly from planning consultants, surveyors and other professionals with rights of direct access.
