As part of Planning Magazine’s fortnightly Room 106 podcast, Shoosmiths sponsored an extended Deep Dive session to explore what the new PM, Liz Truss, means for planning.
Planning partner, Karen Howard, was joined on the panel by Ikeh Ijeh, head of housing, architecture and urban space at Policy Exchange and Chris Rumfitt, founder & chief executive at Field Consulting, as well as Richard Garlic, editor of Planning Resource.
Throughout the discussion, the panel discussed issues including:
- What commitments has Liz Truss has made about planning policy and the possible implications for applicants and authorities?
- Which pledges is Truss likely to take forward most quickly, and what will be the process for doing it?
- Which will be harder to take forward, and why?
