Prism Planning are holding a Seminar with Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors at their Business Law Office at 12 Evolution, Wynyard Park, Wynyard, TS22 5TB from 9am – 10.15am on Thursday 1st May 2014 with registration and refreshments from 8.30am. The National Policy Planning Framework – What’s Happened Since? The National Planning Policy Framework (aka The Framework) is now 2 years old and the planning system has continued to undergo reform and change. Indeed it seems as if change is the only constant in the development world. In March this year we saw the publication of the companion guide to the Framework called the National Planning Policy Guidance. It’s an online tool, of the sort that we haven’t had before and it replaces a lot of the old guidance that’s been around for decades in some instances! Prism Planning will be giving a presentation which will discuss what impact the new Guidance is expected to have and how it might affect how we work and submit planning applications. Alongside all of these changes we have also had new permitted development rights to turn offices into apartments and barns into houses. Some of these rights have only just come into being and we will take a look at what they cover. We will also provide a snapshot update of where all our local authorities are with their Local Plans and whether they admit to a five year land supply! Please contact Alison on 01325 740610 or by email at before 4pm on Friday 25 April 2014 to reserve your place.
At the end of March the widely debated National Planning Policy Framework was released taking immediate effect as national planning policy.

Since the beginning of the ‘Localism Agenda’ and the ‘Big Society’, Prism Planning has been advising clients large and small on the likely effect of the document. This concluding seminar will discuss what has changed since the draft was released in 2011, and what the transitional arrangements mean for development viability and approval of permissions.

Clients will be automatically invited to the event on the 10th of May, but if you want to come along, please drop us a line via the contact us form, and we will get in touch with further information.
