Harrison Grant is regularly instructed by local authorities and other public bodies, who require expert advice on specific environmental, public or planning law issues.
We are well known for our advice to local authorities on a wide range of issues not least air quality, nuisance, railways and airports. We have been involved in some of the most high profile issues looked at by local authorities including HS2 and Heathrow Airport.
We often work with in-house legal departments providing specialist assistance.
We have been advising a number of local authorities who were opposing the expansion of Heathrow Airport and in particular the building of a third runway. As well as advice on noise, air quality and strategic environmental assessment we advised on the NPS and potential legal challenges including judicial review.
