Covid-19 and Beyond…

Town planners play an essential part in shaping the future, particularly during this time of vast adaptation. In response to the impact of Covid-19, many changes have been made in order to keep the development industry moving. Some are only temporary measures but, arguably, the Coronavirus has been the catalyst for implementing permanent change and major reform to our famously bureaucratic planning system. The amendments to the Use Class Order and Permitted Development Regulations are examples of the Government cutting down on the ‘red tape’ that stifles development – more of which is promised in their ‘Planning for the Future’ white paper.

2020 will, inevitably, transform the way we live our lives and the development industry is key to progress our new future. Bell Cornwell want to reassure you that the planning system cannot and will not stop. We are ready to help you navigate this unfamiliar territory and help match your objectives to any new opportunities.
