Each year, this unique and practical workshop aims to provide essential CPD primarily for planning enforcement officers. However, it is also useful for any staff working in development management who get involved in enforcement and want to maintain their effectiveness in this area. The workshop focuses on recent case law and key updates, and each year takes a new look at some aspects of the legislative framework underpinning planning enforcement, as well as examining day-to-day practices and issues. The focus of this year's workshop will be on a variety of subjects including: abandonment; drafting and defending Enforcement Notices (i.e. the Miller Mead test); and a look at holiday letting / AirBnB. Whether you are relatively new to planning enforcement or are more experienced, the examination of issues with reference to real life case studies and the opportunity for group work and discussion will be of real benefit when back at the 'coal face'.
Pace and delivery of presentation was very good. Some of the principles provided included up to date Case Law, which I will incorporate into working practice.
Chance to discuss related and not so related topics to those on agenda, without compromise to advertised topics.
