Our Commercial Team is home for your local council advice. We advise a large number of local councils in the region, and we are pleased to hear from local council clerks who might be calling or emailing for brief guidance ahead of a council meeting, or to discuss engaging our full service at the start of a project.
We recognise that local councils have been empowered to do whatever they want, provided it is lawful, and we have adopted that positive guiding principle in giving you cost-effective advice.
One of our solicitors, Andrew Carrier, is a member of the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC). He completed the ILCA training for local council clerks in early 2016 and went on to gain the CiLCA qualification later the same year (‘a notable achievement’ as mentioned by SLCC). Some of the work Andrew carries out for his local council clients is Pro Bono.
If you would like any further advice on this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.
