Despite repeated attempts in recent years to simplify the planning system, planning law has continued to be so complex that practitioners and students alike have found it difficult to disentangle the issues and principles involved. The twelfth edition of this popular and accessible book aims to remove the mystery which planning law has for so many people. A Practical Approach to Planning Law continues to provide a comprehensive and systematic account of the principles and practice of planning law, guiding the reader through each stage of the planning process, from permission applications through to disputes and appeals. Containing coverage of all recent cases as well as important developments since the publication of the previous edition, particularly those arising out of the Localism Act 2011, this new edition provides an invaluable introduction to the subject for professionals and students alike. The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law, providing a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promote clarity and ease of understanding.
