Guthrie McGruer - Blake Morgan LLP

Within: Planning

Blake Morgan LLP attracts praise for providing 'practical advice based on an in-depth understanding and appreciation of legislative issues'. The planning practice acts for a growing number of large corporate clients, including global food producer Kerry Foods, and has a particularly strong reputation for handling judicial review work. Recent highlights include acting for Kerry Ingredients in negotiating an agreement with Network Rail related to a compulsory purchase order affecting land adjacent to and forming part of the manufacturing area operated by Kerry, resulting in the withdrawal of objections to the order by Kerry. It also acted for Vale of White Horse District Council on s106 agreements related to two major housing developments, and assisting BT offshoot Telereal Services with residential unit scheme in Ealing which was the subject of a complex s106 agreement involving connection to a borough-wide heating source network. Guthrie McGruer heads the practice.
