Several of our staff have direct experience as expert witnesses, and several more have formed part of project support teams at public inquiry and land arbitrations. We have provided expert witness support on over 30 schemes.
Expert Witness Capability

Our expertise is regularly called upon for wind farms at the appeal stage, including for sites where we have not been previously involved in the survey and ecological impact assessment work. Client engagement in this regard is a reflection of BSG Ecology’s high reputation and acknowledged experience in this area.

- Retail development;
