Martin, together with William Upton from Six Pump Court, will brief you on the key issues facing planners and property specialists when dealing with the use of land and buildings and material changes of use, including the practical operation of the 4-year rule and 10-year rule, the ‘second bite’ provision and lawful development certificates.
Ben Garbett from Keystone Law will also update you on the further developments in the law governing permitted changes of use under the GPDO.
Plenty of time is also set aside for lively question and answer sessions chaired by Brian Waters, Editor of Planning in London, so you can learn from the problems of others in the industry as well.
All delegates will also receive the print & digital of Martin’s new book The Essential Guide to the Use of Lands and Buildings under the Planning Acts - worth £75 when bought together after publication
