In August, the government published new regulations introducing a series of new permitted development (PD) rights to enable upward extensions to residential properties and demolitions of buildings to make way for new housing.
A 70 minute webinar on the topic, organised by Planning in partnership with Stantec, took place this week.
It brings together experts from the private and public sector in a webinar – The new permitted development rights: what do they mean for you? – to examine the practical implications.
Our speakers include:
Claire Fallows, planning partner at law firm Charles Russell Speechlys
Ian Fletcher, director of policy (real estate) at the British Property Federation
Scott Witchalls, director of transport and infrastructure at planning consultancy Stantec
Mike Kiely, chairman of the board, Planning Officers Society
The speakers tackle questions including:
- What opportunities and challenges do new PD rights present to property owners and developers?
- How will applications under the new PD rights be assessed?
- How are local authorities handling PD applications – and how might this evolve?
and offer practical advice to help planners, developers and local authorities understand the implications of the changes.
Planning’s editor, Richard Garlick, moderates the session
