Planning, Real Estate and the Localism Act Seminar

The Coalition Government has commenced a major programme of reform to the planning system in the belief that communities should play a stronger role and the system should do more to encourage economic growth. Fundamental changes are contained in the Localism Act 2011, the main provisions of which will come into force in April 2012.

This event will introduce you to the main planning provisions in the Act and to changes in the ways in which planning authorities are expected to operate. It will address issues that you are likely to encounter in day- to-day practice such as the impact of neighbourhood planning, the practical implications of the presumption in favour of sustainable development, new procedures and the operation of the CIL. It will focus on the new enforcement powers available to local authorities and how these may impact on real estate transactions, including those where no development is envisaged.
