Legal planning experts will put the spotlight on the challenges of housing supply and demand at No5's Annual Planning Seminar to be held in Birmingham next month.

No5 Barristers’ Chambers Planning Group is hosting the seminar on March 30 at The ICC and expects around over 250 delegates to attend.

The seminar will highlight current and future issues regarding planning law and practice, and aims to provide essential updates for planning professionals, including both consultants and planning officers as well as planning, property and environmental lawyers, developers, surveyors and architects.

Subjects under the spotlight will include a panel discussion on Government housing policy, local plans, housing and land supply, the future of the Green Belt, how to manage development affected by nitrates and phosphorous, as well as how planning may be affected by the EU divorce.

Speakers will include leaders in their field from No5 Barristers’ Chambers, including Peter Goatley, Celina Colquhoun, Jack Smyth, James Corbet Burcher, Christopher Young QC, Paul Cairnes QC, Tim Jones and Christian Hawley. Richard Kimblin QC will be the chairperson for the day.
