EVENT: IALS – “Planning legislation: merely consolidated or completely overhauled?”

Posted June 5th, 2015 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘Speaker: Charles Mynors, Barrister (Francis Taylor Building)

There are now around 60 statutes in force dealing with town planning and related matters. It might seem to be obviously attractive to undertake a massive consolidation exercise. But how far should it go? What should be included? Should the new statutes codify principles developed by the courts clarifying the meaning of the statutory text? And what about actual changes? How much should be delegated to secondary legislation? What about definitions? Could there be a new on-line version? And why is the Government so reluctant to undertake consolidation? What are the lessons to be learnt from the tax law rewrite programme? ‘
