Working with rail property

Wherever a development or commercial negotiation involves rail property or adjoins railway land, layers of legislation – intended to protect rail infrastructure and operations – can add substantial complexity and delays to the negotiation and planning process.

We help our clients match their plans to what is feasible, to navigate the complexity of rail regulatory processes and to negotiate all the necessary agreements and consents.

Understanding the issues

Through many years working in property and planning around the railways, our specialists have an unrivalled knowledge of how the railways work, what the priorities are within Network Rail and which areas are open to interpretation.

We pride ourselves on detailed technical knowledge, from precedents that support a client’s case to the specifics of where lighter regulation may be called for.

Delivering solutions

Experience shows that the best solutions for rail property are those which allow our clients to meet their objectives efficiently and cost-effectively, while demonstrably serving the best interests of the railways.

We have expertise in making the case for changes and reaching agreements with rail organisations and the Regulator. With a diplomatic approach and sound technical knowledge we acquire all the necessary consents without unnecessary discussion or delay.

We frequently assist with Station Change, Minor Modifications, Network Rail Internal Clearances, Technical Clearances and Disposals of Rail Land.
