Professional Advice

Unlike the District Council the PRC does not have a team of planners on the payroll and cannot rely on taxpayer funding.

Thanks to the generosity of local residents, the PRC has been able to engage the services of planners. traffic consultants and legal advisors to help us make the most powerful case possible and to keep the planning authority honest.

This has proved vital in exposing flaws in the District Council's case and revealing errors in their work about housing numbers, the law, traffic predictions and compliance with the Habitats Regulations that are there to protect Ashdown Forest.

In the last decade the PRC has taken advice from:

  • Hepher Dixon now a part of Savills
  • Motor Transport Research Unit, MTRU
  • Richard Phillips QC and Juan Lopez of Francis Taylor Building Chambers 

Most recently the PRC employed barrister Juan Lopez to argue the case at appeal hearings against MSDC who in our opinion are breaching the Habitats Regulations.
