SWALA held a seminar covering various Planning Law topics on Wednesday 1 March 2017 at Clarke Willmott LLP‘s Bristol office. The issues covered were:
- Planning Court procedure and costs capping orders – by David Gardner of The Administrative Court Office for Wales
- Housing land supply: how far can you go in the Administrative Court? – by Peter Wadsley of St. John’s Chambers
- Limits to Local Authority discretion and the duty to cooperate in Ex p Powergen – where are we now? – by David Shakesby of Osborne Clarke.
Mr Justice Dingemans also took a few moments to remind local practitioners that there was an effective local administrative court jurisdiction for planning matters and urged local practitioners to make use of it.
The seminar was well attended and followed by a networking opportunity over drinks and nibbles.
