The Local Government Act 2002 is about giving local communities a say in their social, economic, environment and cultural well-being. It gives democratic decision making powers to representative councils, and thus a voice to the people who are ultimately affected.

To be successful, these structures need the support of legal advisors who not only have the expertise, but also a personal interest and desire to make a difference.

Whether its preparing statutory planning documents for environmental development projects, or advising local councils on by-law amendments at Canterbury Legal we have the legal expertise to advise on a range of local government issues.

Call one of our specialist team to day and make an appointment to discuss how we can bring about pragmatic and creative solutions suited to your needs.
