Liaison with Local Government Association and the Government's proposals for planning

Clarissa Corbisiero and Russell Reefer of the LGA had been invited to attend the meeting.

Clarissa reported that the LGA had provided oral evidence to the House of Commons Select Committee on the Bill and that there had been some sympathy but also a challenge in respect of S106 agreements and major applications.  The LGA were keen to receive evidence of good practice and good outcomes in these areas to highlight to government.  They had also decided to put together a wishlist of ten issues to re-focus the bill and would welcome input from the Society regarding planning issues.
