Public, planning and environmental lawyer, Ben Standing, talks about the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the key changes coming in which local planning authorities have had to contend with – taking the area of housing numbers as an example.

Another area which Ben is currently involved in is dealing with complaints to the Ombudsman – whereby if an individual is unhappy with the actions of a public body, they may take that body to the Ombudsman. You can hear a bit more about that in this video, with a final look at what public bodies should do if and when potential wrongdoing is uncovered - as we explore a recent investigation in relation to the pensionable pay of a senior officer in a public body.

If you would like more information on any of the topics discussed, please get in touch with Ben direct who will be more than happy to help.
