Welcome to the first edition of our new newsletter, which we hope to use as a means of connecting with our valued clients and colleagues during these unprecedented times, as well as in order to prompt thought and discussion. We will be sharing legal and policy updates, case summaries and even some ‘blue sky’ thinking in relation to developing issues, as well as sharing our experiences as Councils, courts, tribunals and the Planning Inspectorate attempt to embrace remote meetings / hearings and the (socially) distant management of applications, appeals and cases.
This edition provides an update on PD rights from Rachel Sullivan, Stephen Tromans QC’s initial thoughts on COVID and the environment, as well as a CIL update from one of chambers’ newest members – Celina Colquhoun. Finally, John Pugh-Smith provides some thoughts as to how the current situation may impact upon Council meetings.
