As a result of the current government guidelines regarding COVID-19, most local authorities now have alternative working arrangements in place, whilst the spread of the virus is sought to be controlled.
LRM Planning has produced a briefing note which sets out the protocol for each local authority that we work with across South Wales and the South West of England. We are aware the Coronavirus Act 2020 has now been given Royal Assent which may have implications on the planning process, and specifically the manner by which Committees operate. The Act comes into force on 4th April 2020. We intend to update this weekly as ways of working evolve, so please check back as the position is likely to change.
