Should a planning application reach the stage of a public inquiry, our senior consultants can provide specialist advice and support during the inquiry process.


When an expert witness is required

Public inquiries require a detailed knowledge of how national and local planning policy is applied to the historic environment when a proposed development is being considered, or during an appeal.

The contribution of heritage specialists is critical to reaching a judicious decision. In acting as an expert witness, our consultants will review the previous documents, undertake a site visit, provide a proof-of-evidence document and, if necessary, appear in court.
