The Government’s commitment in its Planning for the Future White Paper to streamline and modernise the planning process, reform developer contributions and accelerate the delivery of new homes has attracted considerable attention and criticism, with some reforms already introduced and many more in the pipeline. In an ever-changing environment, local authority planning lawyers and officers must ensure they keep up to date with the latest legislative changes, case law developments and innovations in planning policy, to ensure they are equipped to deliver the best outcomes for their authority.
LLG’s Planning Law Conference 2021 will provide a thorough, topical exploration of the latest developments in planning law through a programme of practical, engaging webinars delivered by leading planning law experts. This year’s conference will include an examination of recent and forthcoming planning policy changes, including the outcome of the Planning for the Future consultation, as well as a session on recent use class changes including Class E and an update on permitted development rights. Speakers will also provide practical insight into section 73 post-Finney, enforcement, and certificates of lawfulness.
The conference programme will encompass an exploration of the most important recent case law developments, including the implications of the Bishopsgate decision and some key considerations. Speakers will explore garden village quality and beauty versus deregulation, as well as section 106, section 38 and section 278 agreements and an update on CIL. The day will also include consideration of the independent review of judicial review and how it may impact on planning challenges, as well as looking at the rules on bias, pre-determination and lobbying in relation to planning.
Featuring expert speakers from planning teams in leading law firms as well as members of Landmark Chambers, all conference sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts and experience. Whilst the event will be held across one day, all sessions will be recorded and made available to download, providing the opportunity either to engage for the whole day or to attend selected sessions on the day and then catch up in your own time. The Conference offers an ideal opportunity for planning lawyers, officers, and anyone working in a local authority planning team to get right up to date with the most important recent developments in planning law.
