Have We Got Planning News for You: S7 Ep.2:


Episode 2 : Liz Peace CBE, Chair of Old Oak Common Development Corporation

Thank you to all those who tuned in to listen to Tom Dobson. If you missed that or any previous episodes they are available on our YouTube Channel (to which we encourage you to subscribe for free). More details about HWGPNFY are on our website.

Each week, the panel - Paul G 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. 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, Shelter or whichever local charity you may prefer. Alternatively, during these times of uncertainty and suffering in Ukraine, we are asking for donations to go to the GoFundMe page for the Help Ukraine Emergency Appeal. Any support during this time is greatly appreciated.


Our Special Guest this week is Liz Peace CBE, Chair of Old Oak Common Development Corporation
