Retail proposals often generate highly complex and challenging issues. Steven Abbott Associates LLP has experience in promoting and securing planning permission for retail schemes of all scales.

We act for landowners, developers and retail operators throughout the planning process, including development plan/local development framework exercises, the preparation of comprehensive planning applications (often working as part of a multi-disciplinary team), and pursuing cases to appeal/public inquiry.

We represent the interests of various national and regional retail operators; and their development partners.

We have been retained by E.H. Booth and Co. Ltd. (Booths) for many years. Booths operates food stores in the North West and North of England.
