About CGD

In most instances we undertake an accurate measured topographic survey, sometimes in full 3D (laser scan), to help us resolve disputes. We combine the latest hardware and software with trained and experienced staff to provide you with a fast, efficient and most importantly a reliable boundary dispute service.

We also understand that Land and Boundary disputes are emotive issues that require careful handling by a suitably qualified professional.
