Our specialist planning team deliver regular live and on demand bitesize planning webinars.

Each webinar explores at least one key planning issue or update that impacts on property developments and regeneration.

In the fifth webinar of our planning series, Susan Ehlinger, an Associate in our Birmingham Planning team considers the case of Hillside Parks which involves issues arising when subsequent grants of planning permission for development within the boundary of an earlier permission are inconsistent with that earlier permission. This conflict was being considered by the Supreme Court at the time of recording.

In particular, the webinar focuses on:

  • A reminder of the fundamental principle established in the Pilkington case
  • An overview of the facts in Hillside
  • The Courts’ decision so far
  • Consideration of the implications of Hillside

This is essential viewing for anyone working in planning, property development and construction, particularly planners, local authorities, housebuilders and developers.
