Thank you to all those who tuned in last week to help make a great success the first broadcast!

Each week, the panel – Paul Tucker QC, Mary Cook, Sasha White QC, Charlie Banner QC and Christopher Young QC – discuss the latest developments in planning law and policy from the week.  

This week we are joined by special guest Bridget Rosewell CBE

As you will recall we five friends have decided to come together during Covid 19 to do a weekly 45 minute show about the latest legal developments in the world of planning. As before, there is no charge for the event, but we would encourage you to make a modest donation to the NHS Combined Charity Page here: Clap For Our Carers, or whichever local charity you may prefer.

Once again in the chair is Charlie, and he will be attempting to marshal the panel through various topics. This week we will also have two special topics –

  • Housing Land Supply in the light of Covid 19: in particular whether the requirements to show a 5 year HLS should be relaxed or strengthened in the light of the past 2 months
  • Bridget Rosewell discusses her reforms to inquiries and the case for using new technology in inquiries and hearings.

We will also be discussing the Local Plan Inspector’s letter to St Albans District Council and the Court of Appeal judgment in Corbett v Cornwall on compliance with the ‘development plan as a whole’.

But it won’t all be serious: there will be “Nudge of the week” to those who ‘could do better’ as well as nominations for “champion of the week”. And if you are missing the fun of inquiries right now, we can guarantee some of the usual barristers’ banter and a bit of leg pulling.

Please do join us and feel free to pass on these details to your colleagues and friends in the world of planning!
