Environmental & Local Government

Law North Limited and its predecessors have provided legal advice to the Far North District Council for over thirty years. We have provided advice in relation to many areas of Council’s business but particularly planning and environmental law. We regularly appear in the Environment Court, High Court and Court of Appeal in relation to resource consents, plan changes and enforcement actions. We also participate in mediations and achieve negotiated outcomes on many matters.

Because we act for Far North District Council, we can’t accept instructions to act against that council. However, we can provide specialist environmental law advice for clients who have interests in other districts, such as Whangarei.

We have a wide network of respected planners, surveyors, engineers and landscape architects who we work with across the district and further afield who we can involve in projects to ensure the best outcome for our clients.

Our specialist environmental and local government team is led by Jo Baguley. Please contact Jo with any of your environmental or planning inquiries.
