In this webinar we focus on the Court of Session’s recent judgement in Gladman v Scottish Ministers, and how the Court’s interpretation of SPP affects planning decision making in Scotland

01 July 2020

In this webinar, we focus on the Court of Session’s recent judgement in Gladman v Scottish Ministers, which sets out the Court of Session’s interpretation of how SPP applies a tilted balance to planning decision making in Scotland.

This webinar was hosted by James Findlay QC and Burges Salmon Partner Craig Whelton, both of whom acted for Gladman and consider the detail of the decision and its implications for the development industry and planning decision makers.

Please note this webinar was broadcast on Tuesday 7 July at 10.00am.

Following the webinar, on Friday 17 July Scottish Ministers published a consultation paper proposing to delete the presumption in favour of sustainable development from SPP altogether.
 
Partner, Craig Whelton, sets out his thoughts on that proposal in this legal update.
