Annual Planning Day 2019 – Practical Answers

04 Nov 2019, 2:00 am


RICS, 12 Great George Street, London, SW1P 3AD



Aimed at planning consultants and developers, the conference will specifically focus on providing practical answers to the biggest questions in planning law, as well as a look at what the future may hold.

Our barristers frequently appear in the leading cases that shape the planning system and develop planning law.

Offering first-hand guidance from leading experts in planning and environmental law, the conference is an ideal opportunity to hear about the impact of recent and important legal developments in the field, and meet our barristers and clerks in an informal and friendly setting. The event will be followed by a conference drinks reception, to be held at a nearby venue. Details will be announced on the day.

We are also pleased to announce Michael Gallimore as this year’s keynote speaker. Michael is a Partner at Hogan Lovells and Head of the Birmingham Office.

A limited number of spaces remain for this event, if you would like to register your interest in attending, please contact Sherine Morgan
