Expert Witness


MEC provides Expert Witness services for Public Inquiries, Informal Hearings, Planning Committees and Emerging Local Plans such as Examination in Public (EIP).

Our in-house team has extensive experience in preparing written representations, statements and proofs of evidence to support either the promotion of a site through the local plan or defend an application at planning committee or any subsequent Appeal.  

We are well versed in attending and being cross-examined at Public Inquiry with a high level of success defending our own evidence put forward at the planning application stage or that of others where a third party consultant has been unable to supply a suitable witness.

We can provide specific advice and expert witnesses across all of our services, with the more common areas of work being: Flood Risk & Drainage, Transport Planning, Noise, Air Quality and Contamination
