  • applying for certificates of lawfulness for existing and proposed use with the view to increasing numbers of caravans permitted on the park.
  • advising on caravan site licensing.


With her developed specialism in planning and licensing, Kelly is also best placed to support clients with the legal processes involved with:

  • preparing planning applications and certificates of lawful use applications.
  • preparing objections to planning applications.
  • drafting and negotiating Section 106 Agreements including affordable housing, open space and financial contributions.
  • advising on the application of the Community Infrastructure Levy.

Posted on 18th September 2023 in Planning and Licensing
