Expert Witness & Appeals
Planning Inquiries and the appeals process can be daunting and extremely risky for any developer or contesting party due to the high costs and importance of the decisions that are made.
Landscape and Visual effects are often debated in contentious circumstances and on tenuous grounds. In such circumstances the contribution of a chartered landscape architect with experience at this stage in the planning process is tremendously valuable.
ESP's co-director and chartered landscape architect Keith Hampshire CMLI has a wealth of experiences to draw upon when it comes to giving evidence as Expert Witness. The cases he has worked on range from large scale housing schemes in the green belt to the extension of large minerals developments in visually sensitive locations.
