For those of you who missed it here is a recording of Kings Chambers’ and the LPDF’s webinar on Local Plans that was held on 25th February. The intention of the webinar was to capture the implications of a transformational year in terms of town and country planning and to consider what the future holds. With the advent of virtual examinations in response to the pandemic, the government has signalled that Local Plans will be even more important in shaping the future growth of our settlements and conserving what is important. With speakers from the Planning Inspectorate, the development industry and local authority backgrounds the webinar looked at important practical lessons from the last year, examining what the White Paper “Planning for the Future” might mean and providing a valuable opportunity to discuss and question current trends and what best practice in plan making will mean in the future. This included consideration of what implications the use of technology will have for the evolution of future plans.
Chaired by Gary Andrew Grant of Kings Chambers the panellists comprised Jerry Youle, the Professional lead for PINS for Local Plans, John Acres who is the Policy Director for the Land Promoters Development Forum (LPDF), John Careford who is Policy Manager at Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Constanze Bell also from Kings.
