The Duty to Co-Operate and other Conundrums – No. 5 Chambers

Posted March 27th, 2012 in environmental protection, news, planning by sally

“In this paper we propose to deal with a miscellany of current conundrums associated with important changes in the law in relation to planning and environmental legislation. The issues to be addressed are, firstly, the vexed question of the proper approach to the duty to co-operate in the context of local development documents that are already progressing through the system. The paper also addresses recent developments and current initiatives in relation to the funding of environmental litigation so as to address the question of compliance with the Aarhus Convention and the legislative follow-up to Jackson LJ’s proposals in respect of costs. Finally, there is discussion in relation to the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 and the approach taken in the Court of Appeal recently.”
