Planning Law Update - March 2019

Whilst further preparatory legislation for Brexit is passed this month, the Courts continue to recognise deficiencies in consultations and to give rulings which remind us of the importance of properly drafted enforcement notices.

We update below on recent planning law changes. For any further details or advice, please contact a member of our Planning & Environment Group: Planning Team or Environment Team.
