The planning system is set to play a crucial role in providing sufficient infrastructure and housing for the country in the years ahead. But will 2018 mark a significant change for planning? Or will the broad policy and legislative backdrop in truth remain much the same?
The progress of nationally significant infrastructure applications slowed in 2017 and housing provision is, as ever, high on the political agenda but seemingly low in terms of delivery.
Long promised reforms to planning policy are expected in 2018 which will attempt to assist in delivering sustainable development. With high profile High Court challenges set to continue the role and procedures of the courts requires careful consideration. And as the UK seeks to leave the EU the implications for environmental law and policy in particular will undoubtedly receive careful scrutiny and debate by practitioners and the courts.
The Planning and Environment Bar Association’s National Conference is always a sell out event. It is highly beneficial, with high quality speakers, relevant and current topics, latest planning case updates and great networking opportunities.
