Expert Witness Services in the Planning & Environment Court
From our extensive experience in the Court, we are able to provide advice as to appropriate legal advisors, should you not have a preferred Town Planning law firm, as it is a highly specialised area of law.
We have also been asked by town planning lawyers to represent their clients in the Planning & Environment Court, even though other planning consultants may have undertaken the development application part of the process.
Preparation of Objections
We have represented many individuals and community groups in the preparation of submissions objecting to development applications and continued that representation in the Planning & Environment Court.
Our costs for court involvements vary depending on the complexity of the matter and time involved in preparing for and presenting evidence in the Court, but is usually in the range of $10,000 to $30,000. Apart from the actual presentation of expert evidence before the Court, our hourly rates for our Planning Court services are the same as for our normal town planning services, the premium for presentation of evidence and cross-examination before the Court being around 10%.
