SPEL 2018 Conference

Thursday 13th September 2018, COSLA Conference Centre, Edinburgh

Our director Pippa is very much looking forward to attending this years Scottish Planning and Environmental Law conference in Edinburgh, where she will be speaking about community empowerment and community rights to buy, with a particular focus on new provisions on acquiring abandoned and neglected land, and other routes to bring land back into active use. 

In addition, the conference program covers:

  • Ongoing challenges in funding infrastructure
  • Implications of the planning review for the planning appeals process
  • Implications of Scotland's Energy Strategy and Climate Change Plan
  • The National Transport Strategy and alignment with planning
  • Environmental consequences of the landfill ban
  • Review of significant case law

This promises to be an interesting and informative day, looking at a wide range of drivers of change in the planning system from environmental law to land reform, as well as of course the Planning Bill which is currently progressing through the Scottish Parliament.

Pippa and Maggie
