Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP were a proud sponsor of the National Development Summit which took place on 20 January 2018.
Partner David Burns and Solicitors Laura Gomme and Ben Frost spoke about the new London Plan and the impact of this on developers.
The London Plan is published by the Mayor of London and is a strategic plan which aims to shape how London evolves and develops. The Plan affects planning decisions and sets a policy framework for local planning authorities across London. It sets out an integrated economic, environmental, transport and social framework for the development of London over then next 20-25 years. The consultation is open until 02 March 2018. You can comment on the London plan before the deadline by following the link https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/planning/london-plan/new-london-plan/how-comment-draft-london-plan
Their presentation focused on the growth and opportunity areas identified by the plan, and of particular interest for developers, the policies concerning housing developments.

Partner Rudi Ramdarshan also took part in a panel discussion around planning and the realities faced by developers and how the involvement of a solicitor at an early stage of a development project can be of assistance.
