This seminar will focus on: 

Recent changes to planning law and future policy and procedural reform. 

There have already been several waves of change to the legislation which governs the planning system and the Government is proposing a more radical shake up going forward. The effects of COVID have prompted some immediate change and a period of reflection among our policy and law makers, but a more comprehensive shift in the direction of travel for planning is set out in the Government’s White Paper Planning For the Future, on which consultation ended in November 2020.  Suffice to say that the White Paper consultation raised a lot of eyebrows amongst planning professionals both for and against the principle of wide scale de-regulation of the system.  It is acknowledged that the proposals for change will lead to a more accessible, modern and efficient planning decision-making process, but there is fear that the changes will lead to a reduction in democratic accountability as the system is centralised.  All are in agreement that one of the central tenets of the reform - a focus on better design - has been a long time coming.
