In the second part of our podcast, we look at how Brexit will likely affect practitioners; how nitrates and phosphates impact development; the recent Planning for the Future document; and a case law update.
Hashi’s first guests are Paul Cairnes QC and Tim Jones who talk about how Brexit will affect practitioners and reference the creation of the Office of Environmental Protection, part of the Environment Bill 2020, and the impact this may have.
Up next is Christian Hawley who tackles the subject of nitrates and phosphates and the impact that it is already having on developments, particularly in the Solent and Herefordshire.
Hashi’s next guest is Richard Humphreys QC who examines the document, Planning for the Future, from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, which aims to ensure 300,000 new homes are built every year.
Finally, we have our Case Law updates. Leanne Buckley-Thomson talks about the key cases connected with Section 73 and Section 96a of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, while Scott Stemp looks at the Community Infrastructure Levy and what can be learned from Oval Estates (St Peter's) Ltd v Bath & North East Somerset Council  EWHC 457.
Howard Leithead chats about the presumption in favour of sustainable development in the revised NPPF and how case law sheds light on the current situation, including Monkhill Ltd v SSHCLG and Gladman Developments Ltd v SSHCLG. Oliver Lawrence discusses cases that are important to practitioners including Gluck V the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, the effect on General Permitted Development Orders, as well as Solo Retail Limited v Torridge District Council and the role of Planning Practice Guidance.
