We do not provide legal advice to members of the public, although directorates will endeavour to assist to clarify responsibilities residents have concerning council functions.
Independent advice is available from a number of sources. A solicitor will give advice although there will usually be a charge though many offer a free period of consultation or a fixed fee interview. You may be able to get free legal advice from solicitors under the advice and assistance scheme. If you are on a low income Legal Aid may pay for your solicitor.
You need to ask about their charging policy and if you can get free legal advice. To find an appropriate local solicitor contact the Community Legal Service Call Centre helpline on 0845 608 1122, or use the find a solicitor facility on the Law Society website.
