In this episode, The Planning Podcast looks to Wales for a lead. We find positive, modern and innovative approaches to the environment, building a cohesive society and planning for development at a strategic scale. The lead is extending and changing as so ably discussed by Dr Victoria Jenkins, associate professor of law at Swansea University, David Harries, Partner at Aaron and Partners and Sioned Davies, planning and environmental barrister at No5 Barristers’ Chambers.

Together, they bring Richard Kimblin QC up to speed with the policy and legal vision in Wales and how and why it differs from that in England. With both planning and environmental reform in England now on foot, it’s a great time to look to Wales and learn.
