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
