Local Government

East Anglian Chambers’ team can advise and represent both local authorities and those seeking to influence or challenge their decisions, drawing on an in-depth knowledge of local government practice and procedure.
Members' expertise ranges from local authority governance, planning and environment, property transactions, housing condition, licensing, highways and streetworks, rights of way and regulatory prosecutions.

We are able to provide representation at tribunals, inquiries, judicial review hearings, statutory appeals and enforcement proceedings in the magistrates and crown courts as well as advising on strategic issues such as :
  • application of policy
  • conduct of councillors
  • duties under the Equalities Act
  • consultation and appropriate decision making, and
  • constitutional compliance.
