Expert Witness for Basingstoke and Deane Council at 8 day Public Inquiry

I was the expert witness on planning matters in respect of a Public Inquiry for a scheme comprising 450 houses, school, community centre and open space. I represented Basingstoke and Deane against David Wilson Homes for the development of a greenfield site in the countryside, drafted the proof of evidence, Statement of Common Ground, a rebuttal proof and liaised with the team over the 5 month period leading up to the Inquiry.

Decision given by the Secretary of State to give planning permission on the basis that the Council did not have a 5 year housing supply.
