Law firm hosts key environment event

Planners, developers and landowners discuss new Bill at inaugural seminar

More than 100 landowners, farmers, planners, commercial developers, land agents and environmentalists from across the Midlands discussed the Government’s far-reaching Environment Bill at law firm Lodders’ inaugural planning event. The Development and Nature seminar, held at Warwickshire’s Mallory Court, was designed to help tackle the confusion and uncertainty surrounding the Bill and specifically the bio-diversity net gain elements of it. Delegates voted the event a ‘timely forum’, given the concern about the status of the key piece of implementing legislation.
