We provide expert opinion as a planning witness for appeals to the Secretary of State, and also to the Courts and for land tribunals. We have been involved in providing independent expert evidence for many cases, including disputes between landowners, freeholders, leaseholders and solicitors.
Training for fellow professionals is also undertaken on specific areas of town planning, or more general topics for those who need to know how the system works. We have also written articles on planning for the general public.
This expert opinion and training comes based on Christian Leigh's 25 years' experience in town planning for a diverse range of clients, and being a guest lecturer in planning law and practice at the Henley Business School, University of Reading, where the undergraduate course is ranked No. 1 in the UK and Europe for Land and Property Management.
