Kings Chambers Planning Podcast Episode 8: Pretty Vacant - Using Vacant Building Credit.
This episode of the planning podcast discusses an underused policy, but one that could rise to significance in the recovery. Vacant Building Credit ('VBC') might be seen as something of a planning backwater, suitable only for dedicated planning aficionados. However, the esoteric nature of the policy should not mask its potential significance, especially during and after the current crisis. Sadly, one of the inevitable consequences of Covid-19 is that more buildings will become vacant and the economic pressures on the house building sector increased. This pressure could be alleviated to some extent by the sensible application of VBC. The panel on this episode is Matthew Stafford (Senior Planning Manager, St Modwen), with Jonathan Easton and Piers Riley-Smith from the Kings Planning Team, chaired by Philip Robson.Download the factsheet here

Kings Chambers Planning Podcast Episode 6: Technology to the Rescue?
The planning system must respond to the ongoing crisis - appeals must still be heard, decisions taken, plans written and examined. The economy depends upon it. What is equally clear is that the usual ways of working will need to change, and quickly, if a significant backlog is to be avoided. The Planning and Environmental Bar Association, has been active in pressing PINS to urgently develop alternatives to in-person planning appeals, using modern video technology. Kings Chambers have closely assisted that process in collaboration with other Chambers. Kings Chambers planning barristers Martin Carter, Stephanie Hall and Tony Gill, have been heavily involved in producing those representations. In this podcast, chaired by Philip Robson, also a member of the Kings Chambers Planning Team, they discuss the prospects and mechanics of remote hearings, the practical and procedural issues, and the appropriate footwear when appearing in a remote appeal.
