Davidson & Robertson becomes NFU Scotland Utilities & Infrastructure Affinity Partner

D&R launch new utilities & infrastructure helpline for NFUS members

Through our new Affinity Partnership with NFU Scotland, Davidson & Robertson will be supporting NFUS members when statutory undertakers like Scottish Power, Scottish Water, or Network Rail need to do work on their land.

We’ll help members understand their rights and what can be claimed for and support them in making that claim so that they’re properly compensated, usually without any cost to themselves as the Statutory Undertaker covers our fees.

Rhianna Montgomery, NFU Scotland Rural Business Policy Advisor said “We are seeing a growing number of concerns amongst our membership about utilities and infrastructure projects impacting their land and businesses. These have a significant effect on farmers’ business through the need for access by the statutory undertakers, damage to crops and property, and ultimately time spent addressing all of these issues.

Davidson & Robertson will provide valuable expertise in utilities and infrastructure claims through their helpline, providing 15 minutes of free advice to all members.”

Ian Austin, D&R Director, and Head of Utilities said “D&R have extensive experience in handling utilities and infrastructure claims, and we’re delighted to extend that support to NFUS members through our helpline.”

Members can call the dedicated helpline 0131 609 9717, or email nfusutilities@drrural.co.uk to receive 15 minutes of free advice from our expert team to discuss issues and outline the next steps.
