Whilst the word ‘planning’ doesn’t feature in its title, the Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023 (LURA) includes a raft of provisions that will significantly change the planning system as and when they are introduced. These include changes to plan making, development management, enforcement and heritage protection.

This webinar considers these changes and what impact they are likely to have on the day to day operation of the planning system.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • The background to the changes to the system
  • Changes to the plan led system including the introduction of national development management policies and a revised approach to local plan production

  • Proposals for a new infrastructure levy
  • Environmental outcomes reports, a new system for environmental assessment
  • Enforcement changes including changes to timescales to enforce and the introduction of enforcement warning notices
  • Neighbourhood planning changes including the introduction of neighbourhood priority statements and street votes
