Question & answer:

From our experience speaking at the events organised by the Pylons East Anglia group, we expect many land and property owners will have questions they would like to ask a specialist solicitor; if not before hearing our talk and session, then certainly afterwards.

There will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the online information session.
