Intervention overload? – Development Management and Planning Law update with Ashfords

Wednesday, 04 March 2020 at 10:00AM - 4:00PM
The Mercure Rougemont, Queen St, Exeter EX4 3SP
RTPI South West

The legislative and legal framework for Development Management appears permanently in flux. Amongst the UK/EU debates, new legislation and wealth of permitted development rights to increase housing delivery and streamline the planning process, do these interventions work and do they result in appropriate homes or are we reaching intervention overload?

This conference aims to review recent Development Management updates to highlight what climate change means for planners, changes in legislation and interpretation, reviewing the “good, the bad and the ugly”; permitted development rights for residential use and use of conditions from the developer perspective.

Speakers and topics:

Case Law Update
Scott Stemp, No 5 Chambers

CIL, viability and the delivery of climate change mitigation
James Blackwell, Ashfords

Planning Conditions from a housebuilder perspective
Andy Cattermole – Barratt David Wilson

What climate change declarations should mean for planners and what they do: plan-making and development management
Rachel Coxcoon, CSE, Councillor for Cotswold District Council in 2019 and is the Cabinet Member for Planning Policy, Climate Change and Energy


  1. Permitted development changes to Residential – the good the bad and the ugly
    Gavin Collett – Magdalen Chambers

  2. The implications of recent case law for DM planners
    Duncan Moors and Michelle Perring, Ashfords

  3. Reflecting climate change in planning policy and delivery
    Gareth Pinwell, Ashfords 

Sponsored by Ashfords
