Planning in Brief: Thursday 23 April – 5pm

Have We Got News for you?

  • Have you got the Lockdown Blues?
  • Are you looking for something informative but also easy to watch?
  • Are you just after an excuse to avoid other members of your household?

Then this might be right up your street. Planning in Brief is a light-hearted review of the week’s latest developments by five barristers from across the Planning Bar: Paul Tucker QC, Mary Cook, Sasha White QC, Charlie Banner QC and Christopher Young QC. 

Although from different chambers and firms, we five friends have decided to come together during Covid 19 to do a 40 minute show about the latest legal developments in the world of planning. There is a Just Giving page if anyone wishes to make a modest donation to the NHS here: Clap For Our Carers

The Format

We will offer our views on key policy and legislative developments; review the latest court cases and planning appeal decisions; and highlight any important forthcoming judgments or decisions of interest. But it won’t all be serious: there will be “moan of the week” 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.

In the chair this week is Charlie, and he will be attempting to marshal the panel through various topics include appeal decisions addressing housing delivery under Covid 19; remote committee meetings under the Coronavirus Act, and the case of R (Advearse) v Dorset and Hallam Land about committee reports, heritage and the court’s discretion.

Joining Instructions

There is no entry fee (but please feel free to make a donation to the NHS if you wish). Do pass this on to friends and colleagues in the world of planning.

If you are interested in joining please email any of the participants for the joining details – all are welcome. Alternatively, please contact Paul Tucker QC at [email protected].
