West Midlands Young Planners are proud to invite you to the return of the ‘Planning for Inquiries’ kindly led by Kings Chambers and University of Birmingham. The session aims to educate young planners on public inquiries in planning providing relevant background and legislation, and the opportunity to participate in a mock inquiry.

The interactive session will firstly provide a background of public inquiries in planning, how they operate, and skills and tips for preparing for an inquiry led by three barristers at Kings Chambers, Constanze Bell, Mark Howell, and Shemuel Sheikh. 

The mock inquiry will be on the case of Land at Eldercot Road, and will require 8 participants to act as planning witnesses, with the remaining attendees in the audience.  If you would like be one of these 8 participants, please email [email protected].  Participants will be selected on a first-come-first-served basis and will be required to review the background information which will be provided to them in advance.

The event will take place at the University of Birmingham on Tuesday 24 May 2022, 9.30am-3pm. Lunch will be provided.  Please note that this event is for young planners - ie planners within the first 10 years of their career including student, licentiate or chartered members.
