Please find below our latest update regarding local authority protocol for processing planning applications as a result of Covid-19.
This briefing note covering South Wales and the South West of England has been updated to include the most recent changes since our last note was issued on the 9th April. All previous briefing notes will remain available on our website for reference. The Coronavirus Act 2020 came into effect on the 4th April 2020 enabling local authority meetings before 7th May 2021 to be held remotely, however the regulations are not prescriptive about how authorities will facilitate meetings. The majority of Authorities are still reviewing how this will be carried out. We intend to update this note regularly as ways of working evolve, so please check back for the most recent updates on a weekly basis.
