CONSTRUCTION, PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT

Our Environmental Law team specialise in all areas of environmental law (UK and European), including:

  • Hazardous substances
  • Waste
  • Pollution
  • Contaminated land
  • Noise control (including appeals to the Magistrates’ Court under the Environmental Protection Act 1990)
  • Water
  • Statutory nuisance

Our barristers are regularly instructed to act for clients at all stages, from initially advising through to representing clients in court or at inquiries. Members of the team are also experienced in related areas, such as planning, public law and crime.

All our team members can accept instructions direct from industry professionals under the Licensed Access scheme. This allows members of licensed organisations, such as the RICS, to instruct us without having to go through a solicitor.

Public Access

Some members of the team are also available to act, where appropriate, for members of the public, as well as commercial and non-commercial organisations, under the Public Access scheme. Read more.

The team delivers workshops and seminars in Chambers and regional centres. We also provide training on behalf of local Law Societies and in conjunction with firms of solicitors and also councils. We can also provide tailored in-house training for particular firms. If you would like any further information please contact Elizabeth Champion 0117 923 4712 or email: [email protected].
