Thu, 27 Apr 2017

No5 Barristers' Chambers planning specialist Kevin Leigh secured an important victory in the High Court today for a landowner in Flintshire faced with a gypsy and travellers site being granted planning permission on land opposite his home.

The council is seeking permission to appeal.
