PEBA National Conference 2019 – Driving Planning; Hitting the Accelerator and Brake…

Event date: 17 May 2019 Event

Date: Friday 17th May 2019
Hogan Lovells Inernational LLP, Atlantic House, Holborn Viaduct, London, EC1A 2FG
Registration from 9.00. Event starts at 9.30. Event finishes at 15.45.

The 2019 PEBA National Conference will assess the latest developments and proposals for planning and environmental law, policy and procedure in key areas. With leading practitioners from the Bar, a keynote address from The Hon. Mr Justice Dove and the Frances Patterson Paper being delivered by Bridget Rosewell CBE (appointed Chair of the Independent Review into Planning Appeal Inquiries in June 2018) the National Conference should prove to be an essential day for all those involved in and concerned about planning and the environment.

2019 is likely to be a significant year. The ever present issues of climate change, Brexit and housing delivery have been given a renewed focus by new policy, evidence and the passing of time. Will the planning system now speed up and produce results? Or will a combination of political, economic and legal hurdles result in a slowing down in the delivery of key infrastructure at a time when progress is needed?
