The new planning system should be simpler and leaner. However, many people are finding it anything but: they are baffled by the new vocabulary, the fee structures, the new application processes and the changes to what is permitted and what is not. This book offers pragmatic, common sense answers to the key questions you will be asking about the planning system in 2009.

Keeping up to date with legislative changes and procedural requirements is testing, even for experienced practitioners. Such is the nature of today's clearer, simpler, speedier planning system!

For this new book the author has collated hundreds of real-life FAQs, answering each in his jovial, down-to-earth style. He covers many of the questions you are likely to be asking about today's planning world, including:-

  • What changes have been made to permitted development rights?
  • What will happen to Local Plans?
  • Why is the new validation process required?
  • Should I appeal?
  • What constitutes a 'significant effect on the environment'?
  • What are Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects?
  • Should I CLUED or CLOPUD?
  • How has the Planning Act 2008 altered the process?
  • and what about the future?
The questions follow the process from inception to decision and beyond, so you will easily find the answer you need. The expert advice is supported by quick-reference summaries, digests of key cases and lists of general principles, plus a glossary of key terms.

This is an essential resource for anyone who wants to keep in step with the new planning system.
