Local Government and Environmental Law
Liston Legal offers advice and representation in disputes with councils. Such disputes include issues arising from development consents (or the failure to grant development or building consent), demands by councils to undertake work including the removal of structures, defending council prosecutions and advising on whether proposed developments or activities are permissible under relevant planning laws.
The firm, through its experienced property and commercial solicitor, principal Bill Liston, can advise on and facilitate applications to council such as subdivision applications and building and development applications.
We provide advice and representation in defending prosecutions by environmental authorities.
Our general counsel Chris Leahy acted for and against local councils and environmental authorities during his many years as a barrister and senior counsel. His experience in both acting for and against local councils and environmental authorities over many years ensures you will be competently advised and represented.
