iPlanning - November 2013
Welcome to iPlanning - WJM’s round-up of the latest planning news and decisions. In this issue we cover new guidance issued on EIAs, consider the NPF3 and SPP consultation responses published and highlight some changes to the English Planning System. We also consider two key decisions: the judicial review of the Stronelairg wind farm and the decision of the Aarhus Compliance Committee on the legality of the UK’s National Renewable Energy Action Plan.
We hope you find this issue as helpful as ever and we will be back shortly with more planning updates.

Welcome to the May 2013 edition of iPlanning.
In this issue we discuss the draft SPP and NPF3 issued at the date of going to press, and in particular the developing thinking in relation to areas of Wild Land. We also discuss a recent decision of the English Courts in relation to separation distances for wind farm developments, a challenge to the Cairngorms National Park Local Plan, and on more mundane topics, the High Hedges Bill.
We hope you find this issue as informative as ever. We will be back later in the summer with more detailed analysis of the SPP and NPF3.
Welcome to the February 2013 edition of iPlanning.
In this issue we consider two recent cases, one on listed buildings consent and another in relation to the proposed Shetland wind farm and the Minister’s decision to grant consent without holding a Public Local Inquiry. The case is likely to raise issues of broader importance. The related issue of what is the appropriate forum for determining a planning application or Appeal, and whether, in controversial cases, a full blown Inquiry is always necessary, is topical and likely to continue to be discussed as Reporters continue to get to grips with their increased case management responsibilities under the “new” Appeals regulations.
