Virtual Planning Committees - which London Boroughs are Zooming ahead?

19 May 2020

Newington's research shows that more than 66% of London Boroughs have now held virtual Planning Committee meetings.  

Since the Government allowed councils to hold virtual meetings on 3 April, 22 Boroughs have now held meetings online. This week, Harrow and Ealing (Wednesday) and Tower Hamlets, Kingston and Bromley (Thursday) will all hold their first virtual meetings. Thoughts must now turn to the question, who will be last to go virtual?

Not surprisingly, boroughs vary significantly in which format they use and what arrangements are made for applicants/ agents and objectors to speak.
