Commercial High Street Planning Challenges & Opportunities - Nicola Allan

In recent years, the traditional high streets in the UK's cities and towns have seen a significant decrease in footfall, in turn, many are losing their identity. In response and as part of the Government's ‘levelling up’ agenda, there has been increased investment into the Towns Fund and ongoing deregulation of planning.

At Trinity Chambers' Newcastle 2023 Business and Property Conference, specialist planning barrister and Chartered Town Planner, Nicola Allan explored this further in her talk entitled:
‘Whither the High Street’ - Planning Challenges & Opportunities

In this talk, Nicola discusses the relaxation of planning controls and their private law implications in the context of the evolving high street. Nicola’s session covers the following topics:

  • Town & Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987
  • New CLASS E
  • General Permitted Development Orders (GPDOs)
  • Leases & Covenants
  • Right to Light
  • Party Wall Act 1996
  • Housing & Planning Act 2016
