This webinar forms part of our RTPI Online series and is brought to you by the RTPI South East Scotland Chapter.

Following the passing of the Human Rights Act 1998, Neil Collar (Partner at Brodies LLP) authored a book ‘Planning and Human Rights’ which considered the potential implications that the Act could have on planning.

The conclusion was that it was largely too early to tell what the full implications could be.

In this lecture and Q and A, Neil will revisit the findings of his book 20 years on in order to understand how planning has been influenced by human rights. The talk will reference recent developments in case law in Scotland and the UK to understand the effects of human rights legislation on planning, and to consider what the future developments are likely to be.
