Planning Legal Discussion - Section 75 in Practice and Litigatious Issues

An East of Scotland Chapter event

Wednesday, 19 April 2017 at 6:15PM - 7:30PM
Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 5EN, UK
RTPI Scotland

The RTPI EoS Chapter are proud to present in partnership with Lindsays LLP the inaugural ‘Planning Legal Discussion’ event.

The event will be jointly hosted by Susan Law a Partner in Commercial Property and Iain Penman a Partner in Dispute Resolution and Litigation of Lindsays LLP, a well-respected Scotland wide practice. Both speakers have extensive experience in regards to both Planning and Property Law with exposure to a wide range of relevant issues and topics spanning several years.

This range of experience will prove to be of great benefit for the purpose of this much anticipated event. As with all aspects of planning the legal implications are key in the way in which the wider system operates and functions, working within the legal framework is essential in regards to operating in the correct manner, be it obtaining planning permission through to implementation. 

The event will take the form of two presentations followed by a Q & A session with both Susan and Iain covering key topics including Section 75 Agreements and the issues that are faced in terms of enforcement phasing, how this intertwines with missives and option agreement.  Also up for discussion will be Ancillary Litigious Matters that affect planning and the wider reaching implications. This event is not to be missed and will be of interest to all of those involved in both the Planning and Legal sectors.
