"We would highly recommend Mauger's Legal Services. Communication has been excellent by email and telephone! Susan is a wonderful lady who took the time to explain all procedures throughout! Two very happy clients!"

Des - Chair of CLOUT

CLOUT (Carbis Bay and Lelant Opposing Urbanisation Together)

CLOUT employed Mauger’s Legal Services to provide planning/legal advice as to how CLOUT might best present its case at a Public Inquiry into the refusal by Cornwall Council of two Planning Applications to develop land at Gonwin Farm Carbis Bay St Ives. CLOUT had been successful in putting its case against the development to two separate meetings of Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee.

Susan Mauger provided an excellent service from beginning to end. She attended many Committee meetings of CLOUT to advise on procedures at the Pubic Inquiry, how we could address the Public Inquiry to achieve the best result, what specialist witnesses we might employ to speak at the Public Inquiry to cover the areas where we lacked the necessary expertise and generally as to how we could support Cornwall Council in achieving its decision to refuse both applications to be upheld.

There is no doubt that Susan is a real expert in planning law and procedures. She is an excellent advocate and provided CLOUT with the professional support that we needed. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a Legal/Planning Advocate.

We employed Susan Mauger without hesitation after seeing her in action at a town council meeting. We were at the same meeting fighting an outrageous planning application next door to us which was withdrawn. However, very shortly afterwards a second application was submitted……we immediately rang Susan who came to our rescue. We had a very helpful free initial consultation meeting, where all our concerns were addressed. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We could not recommend Susan highly enough. She goes way beyond the call of duty, her knowledge of planning is remarkable and she can fight your corner in any planning meeting. If you have any planning issues, from our experience, we would recommend calling Susan straight away - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain
