Our webinar, led by planning lawyer Susan Ehlinger, will discuss various highway implications during and after COVID-19, and explore whether the impacts are more likely to be benefits or indeed pitfalls.

Key topics for consideration during the webinar include:

  • New right of way claims, the statutory requirements and would COVID-19 be an “Interruption of use” to claimed public rights of way if people have had to stay at home. 
  • If COVID-19 results in reduced highways use in the long term and an increase in sustainable methods of transport, as widely anticipated, how might this impact on planning applications for new development?  
  • Where planning permission has already been granted, we’ll consider the possible impact on any planning obligations which were based on pre-COVID-19 conditions.

Who should watch?

  • Planning Consultants; 
  • Surveyors, Architects and other professionals who handle planning applications; 
  • Directors and managers of development companies including Land and Planning Managers at Housebuilders.
