On-demand webinars

Certificates of Lawful Use and Permitted Development Rights – Navigating the System

In the last of our quarterly webinar series, we focus on Certificates of Lawful Use and Permitted Development Rights – Navigating the System.

In this webinar, we look at the detail of how and when Certificates of Lawful Use can be used as a tool to regularise an existing or proposed planning use. This often comes hand in hand with permitted development rights which can be a tricky regime to navigate, so we will also be focussing on the prior approvals process and the latest reforms which have been subject to a recent High Court challenge.

This session is chaired by Sarah Sutherland, who is joined by colleague Hannah Mannion (Solicitor).

Community Infrastructure Levy – Avoiding Common Pitfalls

In the third of our quarterly webinar series we focus on Community Infrastructure Levy – Avoiding Common Pitfalls.

This session is chaired by Sarah Sutherland, who is joined by colleagues Stephen Humphreys (Senior Associate) and Anna Coyle (Solicitor). In the webinar we cover the following:

  • A review of the key developments in relation to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) regime during the last year, with a particular focus on practical examples and common pitfalls for both charging authorities and developers.
  • Key case law updates following the amendments to the CIL Regulations back in September 2019
  • Discussion around the more recent relaxations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • A brief look forward to what’s on the horizon for the Regulations that are constantly evolving.

  • Legal update including key cases on consenting hurdles
