The Government has published the Business and Planning Bill 2019-21. The Bill contains in Part 3 proposed legislation to address some of the consequences of the covid-19 outbreak, including the modification of conditions relating to construction working hours and the extension of the duration of planning permissions. Richard Honey was instructed by MHCLG Legal Advisers to advise on these elements of the proposed legislation and related guidance, especially the European environmental law aspects, during the development of the proposals from April through to June 2020.
Richard will be chairing a webinar on this topic to be held at 4pm on Friday 3 July. Please book via the FTB Events page
