What planning documents mean is of critical importance to developers who are relying on them to authorise development, local authorities who are responsible for ensuring that commitments are adhered to and communities who will be impacted by development proposals.

There is now a body of case law that guides the approach to the interpretation of a range of planning documents. This virtual classroom seminar will review the principles that can be derived from these decisions.

This session will include practical insights into how to interpret planning documents in the light of case law.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • The description of development
  • Planning conditions
  • Planning obligations
  • Inconsistent permissions
  • ‘Drop in’ permissions
  • Planning policy
  • Certificates of lawful development

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
