This live broadcast session will enable you to understand in more detail the additional protection above the normal planning rules afforded to listed buildings, conservation areas and trees.

We will explore the problems created by the fact there is no appeal against the listing of a building, making of a conservation area or tree preservation notice.

This session will consider the possible impact of the proposed reforms in the Government’s White Paper published in August. Particular attention will be given to the proposed reform of S 106 and CIL; affordable housing; protection of heritage assets: and Permission in Principle.

All proposed changes to Permitted Development rights as a result of COVID-19 will be dealt with.

In addition, the proposals for upward extensions, insistance on proper lighting standards together with New Homes and Building with Beauty will be considered.
