Our on-demand 30-minute webinar, led by planning lawyer Susan Ehlinger, will discuss the importance of viability in planning and why early consideration is key.

The approach to viability in planning changed dramatically following the publication of the revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG) in 2018, meaning those involved in the development process need to be mindful of the new rules at an earlier stage, and consider them in more detail, than ever before. 

The webinar will consider:

  • Key changes
  • Pitfalls to avoid; and
  • Relevant case law, most notably R (Holborn Studios) v London Borough of Hackney (No 2), which addresses the thorny issue of the extent to which the contents of viability assessments have to be made publicly available.

Who should watch?

  • Developers; 
  • Landowners;
  • Site promoters; and 
  • Those advising on the development potential of land.
