Each week, the panel - Paul G Tucker KC, Mary Cook, Sasha White KC, Charlie Banner KC and Christopher Young KC - 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 Sir Brian May’s and Anne Brummer’s Save Me Trust, National Energy Action (NEA) the UK's leading fuel poverty charity, 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 Joanna Averley, the Government’s Chief Planner in England.
