Expert witness

Mark has over 25 years’ experience in landscape and environmental appraisal and works with the Smeeden Foreman team to deliver expert witness services for public and private clients. Whilst our assessments are prepared to inform the planning process sufficiently to avoid inquiry and appeals, where this is unavoidable we have current experience in preparing written representations and attending informal hearings and public inquiries. Mark has been a witness for public bodies, such as the Highways Agency, Edinburgh City Council, Barnsley MBC, North Yorkshire County Council and Harrogate Borough Council. He has also appeared for community groups, Doncaster Civic Trust, and in support of residential, commercial, recreational and industrial developments for landowners, private individuals and development companies.
