Planning on-demand webinar: Planning Law

Registration for Planning on-demand webinar: Planning Law - £35 per council
You need to sign-in before you can register for this event.

This series of one hour briefing webinars are designed to enable councillors and officers to understand planning law, their roles and responsibilities, how decisions are made,  neighbourhood planning, Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), Section 106 Agreements, conservation, listed buildings, trees and enforcement. There is also a dedicated session covering LURA (Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023) and Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG).  

LURA 2023 aims to reduce geographic disparities across the UK through changes to existing local government, planning and compulsory purchase legislation. It is also intended to speed up the planning system, hold developers to account, cut bureaucracy and encourage more councils to put in place plans to enable the building of new homes. 

BNG is a way of creating and improving natural habitats and aims  to make sure development has a measurably positive impact on biodiversity compared to what there was before development.
