Minerals and Waste

Over several decades, No5 has advised and represented clients who need a specialist understanding of minerals and waste planning and the unique issues which those industries and national needs present. 

Members of the group have developed a deep appreciation of the spatial planning, technical and commercial challenges of the industry.  Some of the most complex planning inquiries and seminal legal cases arise from the minerals and waste sector, and members of the group have appeared in very many of them.  They provide expertise in dealing with scientifically complex evidence, both in marshalling that evidence long before an inquiry and in testing such evidence before planning Inspectors.  They have experience and expertise in the key niche areas of minerals and waste law.  These are areas of particular strength in chambers.
