It isn’t clear when they will be rescheduled, and even after lockdown ends, social distancing rules may be retained for some time. This has major implications for all planning appeals, but enforcement cases in particular.

Josef Cannon from Cornerstone Barristers and Harry Spurr from IPOS Mediation are experienced planning lawyers and mediators and can help you.

In this flyer, they discuss the main issues that local authorities are likely to face during this challenging period and they suggest that mediation can provide a quick and affordable alternative to enforcement appeals.
