Solicitors in Suffolk

Suffolk is an agricultural county in East Anglia. Local Suffolk solicitors are therefore often very familiar with the laws relating to agriculture. In Ipswich, the county town, there are a large number of solicitors who specialise in the more common areas of law, such as divorce, probate and employment.

One ongoing legal battle which has required the assistance of Suffolk solicitors comes from Easton Bavents, a coastal town in Suffolk. The claimant in the case is a retired engineer who designed a soft barrier to protect his home from coastal erosion.

The barrier was comprised of 250,000 tonnes of compact clay which was set in front of the soft sea walls under his house. The barrier was opposed by Natural England, a conservation society which declared the area a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the discoveries that could be made when the soft walls erode.

In the latest court decision the Judge ruled that the SSSI declaration has been unlawful, since Natural England did not follow the proper procedures.

The homeowner is still unable to maintain his wall, however, because the judge allowed Natural England to appeal, and no action can be taken until the decision is finalised.
