CategoryArticles, Newsletters Author Richard Harwood OBE KC, Stephen Tromans KC, John Pugh-Smith, Philippa Jackson, Daniel Stedman Jones, Victoria Hutton, Jonathan Darby Date

Welcome to the Planning, Environmental and Property July 2015 Newsletter.

This month’s newsletter looks at some recent and anticipated developments, following the change of government in May 2015. Richard Harwood OBE QC scrutinises the latest planning reforms aimed at encouraging house building, while Victoria Hutton considers the increasing importance of Assets of Community Value in planning terms.

Solar photovoltaic energy is another ‘hot’ topic and, in this edition, Stephen Tromans QC, Philippa Jackson and Jon Darby examine current government policy on locating solar PV schemes on agricultural land. Meanwhile, John Pugh-Smith analyses a recent High Court decision concerning the application of s.9 Limitation Act 1980 in the context of a compulsory purchase compensation dispute. He also considers the consequences of a change in a Council’s five-year housing land supply position in three recent appeal decisions.

Thanks for your interest. We hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter.
