Prosecution avoided thanks to “extensive knowledge” of Senior Associate

Planning, Highways and Environment Senior Associate Brendon Lee was recently praised for his work negotiating a resolution with a local planning authority. Brendon’s client, a developer, contacted him after it was subject to enforcement action for allegedly cutting down some trees in contravention of a tree preservation  order (TPO). These orders protect individual and groups of trees for public amenity.

The enforcement action included prosecution by the local planning authority. However, Brendon’s expertise, knowledge of planning, and negotiating skills led to the withdrawal of the prosecution.

Following this successful outcome, the developer said:

“We enjoyed working with Brendon and with his extensive knowledge he was able to achieve a positive outcome for us. He’s always very contactable and an efficient communicator. We would be happy to use his services again.”

Brendon is looking forward to working on similar cases in the future.
