Laura Gaudion - Senior Lawyer (Litigation) - Isle of Wight Council


The Enforcement Team consists of counsel who specialise in Civil Enforcement, Planning Enforcement and related Criminal Prosecutions.

We regularly act for Private Clients, Developers and Local Authorities in forums such as Inquiries, the Criminal Courts and in Civil Injunctions. Our members have experience in dealing with cases involving Gypsies and Travellers, Eco-Lodges, Aerial, Mobile and Outdoors Advertising, Waste, Lawful Development Certificates, Extant Permissions and Off-Street Trading.

The Enforcement Team compliments our Regulatory Criminal Team, enabling counsel to have a unique perspective to our work with the Proceeds of Crime Act and its impact on prosecutions brought by Local Authorities.

Whilst much of the team’s work comes from Local Government, many of the team undertake enforcement related work from other public bodies or affected parties whose interests demand protection. Our team is renowned and respected for its commitment to community and members often act for local businesses and individuals.
