We approached Sharpe Pritchard seeking advice and representation regarding an application for a 4G/5G telecoms installation, less than 30m from our front door. Emily & Rebecca were extremely approachable, informative and relatable. They understood our position, and researched and reviewed the situation as appropriate. They helped us achieve the best position possible, and, in our opinion, their input certainly added expertise and gravitas to our representations presented to Planners, and subsequently, PINS. Both the application and subsequent appeal made by the telecoms company were refused. Should we require further assistance in the future, we would not hesitate to consult with Emily & Rebecca – an honest and forthright team.
