Following the success of last year’s webinar series, our planning team launched a new series of live bitesize planning webinars. Each webinar explores at least one key planning issue or update that impacts on property developments and regeneration.
In the sixth and final webinar of this series, our expert looks at the process of decision-making by local authorities and their officers, along with members’ duties and what these entail. In particular, they consider:
- decision making generally and what happens when it goes wrong
- the development plan and material considerations as part of the decision making process
- predetermination, bias and conflict of interest
- officer reports to committee
