The 2020 PEBA National Conference will assess the latest developments in planning and environmental law and assess policy and procedure in key areas.
At the start of a new decade, there are many challenges facing the planning system. A newly elected government has promised a clearer and more accessible planning system, hinted at ambitious reforms to deliver more housing and infrastructure and aims to simplify planning.
Climate change and the need for serious action in that regard are key issues for the planning system. The conference will examine the latest developments and proposals for environmental law and action to address climate change as the UK leaves the EU.
The role of local and neighbourhood plans in delivering housing will be considered, as will the interplay between planning and licensing regimes and the implications for the night time economy. Leading experts will also consider the latest government proposals for planning and the environment and assess whether, what is now proposed for the planning system will deliver, what is required for the decade ahead.
As well as looking to the future, the conference will provide a comprehensive assessment of the key case law over the last year.
The conference will include papers from leading practitioners at the Bar and a keynote address from The Right Hon Lord Sales, Justice of The Supreme Court. This year the Frances Patterson Paper is being delivered by Mrs Justice Andrews. The National Conference should prove to be an essential day for all those involved in and concerned about planning and the environment.
