Marcia works from our Norwich office but secures instructions nationally including Wales.
Before joining Birketts Marcia worked for a local authority dealing with a variety of work relating to Public Rights of Way, Highways, Common Land and Town and Village Greens. This experience has enabled Marcia to assist clients on a wide range of enquiries relating to public access, coastal access, public rights of way and highways.
Marcia advises clients on matters relating to public right of way claims which includes research, interpretation and advice relating to historic maps and documentation. Marcia is also experienced in assisting clients with making applications to secure changes to the public rights of way network.
Common Land and Town and Village Green legislation and applications is another area of work Marcia covers including applications to deregister buildings and land wrongly registered as common land or as a town or village green.
Clients have also received support from Marcia with applications to stop up or extinguish highways including areas which are affected by development.
Marcia also recommends and assists landowners with applications to protect their land from public right of way and town and village green claims and provides permissive access licence agreements when required.
