Following two previous episodes covering Garden Villages and the revised National Planning Policy Framework, Kings Chambers is set to release its third planning podcast on 22 January.
The podcast series sees experts from the world of planning come together to discuss hot industry topics. The theme for the third episode is Housing Need and Land Supply: The Good, the Bad, and the Methodology. Kings Chambers planning barristers Sarah Reid and Philip Robson will be joined in the studio by planning experts Matthew Spry from planning and development consultancy Lichfields and Russell Crow, Regional Director at Richborough Estates, a strategic land promotion business.
Participants will discuss the effectiveness of the PM’s pledge to streamline the planning process. They will share their views on changes to the standard method of assessing housing need and the Housing Delivery Test, the annual measurement of housing delivery.
The podcast aims to provide listeners with much-needed clarity on the current minefield.
Key discussion points of the podcast will include:
The likely outcome of the consultation, the likely implication for those submitting applications and the arguments at inquiry, the approaches of inspectors and the advice being given to clients during this confusing time.
