A panel of experts will share their views on fracking for shale gas at a conference to be held in central London next month.

Peter Chadwick, head of county planning at Hampshire County Council, and Naomi Ludhe-Thompson, planning adviser at charity Friends of the Earth, will take part in a debate at the Planning for Energy Infrastructure and Environmental Sustainability conference, organised by Planning.

Also speaking during the Question Time-style session, which will include a discussion on applications to test drill for hydraulic fracturing, will be Richard Glover, head of planning at law firm Squire Patton Boggs.

The one-day event, which will offer practical information on dealing with practical challenges in planning for energy infrastructure, takes place at One Drummond Gate on 2 December.
