Existing utilities (pylon lines, wood pole lines, underground cable, substations, gas pipes and water pipes) can hinder full development of a site.
Working closely with our residential and commercial development clients and landowners, we review existing rights and determine the feasibility of diverting the utility apparatus to free up valuable development land.
We assess the loss created by its presence and may invoke statutory processes, enabling diversion or compensation if it remains in situ.
With UK-wide coverage and over 15 years' experience in this niche area, we are well placed to understand the nuances involved, including the methodologies adopted by the utility companies, the financial loss created and the statutory processes involved.
We offer our wayleaves and easements advice in relation to all utilities sectors. Find out more about Carter Jonas’ utilities expertise.
