Breakfast Briefing - The Independent Review of Planning Appeal Inquiries Report by Mrs Bridget Rosewell CBE
Registraton over coffee and croissants from 8.00am. Briefing from 8.30 - 9.30am.
The Independent Review of Planning Appeal Inquiries Report by Mrs Bridget Rosewell CBE was published on 29 February 2019.
The Rosewell Review is part of the government’s programme of reforms and targeted investment to ensure we deliver 300,000 new homes a year by the mid-2020s.
Bridget Rosewell’s review makes 22 recommendations. These range from committing the Planning Inspectorate to introducing a new online portal for the submission of inquiry appeals to setting out a strategy for recruiting additional inspectors so that planning inquiries can be scheduled sooner, which it is hoped will reduce the length of time they take to conclude. The report also found that speeding up planning inquiries can be achieved through straightforward reforms, the aim being to reduce significantly the current time that it takes for decisions to be made.
The Communities Secretary, Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP, has welcomed the review, saying that it provides a clear direction of travel on how the appeals inquiry process can be made fit for purpose.
Event Speakers: Craig Howell Wiliams QC, Caroline Daly
