Many of the key figures in Northern Ireland's planning and environmental sector recently attended an event in Belfast entitled ‘Planning for the Future'. At the seminar, which was sponsored by Carson McDowell, the Minister for the Environment, Alex Atwood, MLA, was joined by a panel of key speakers including Gary McGhee, Head of Planning and Environmental Law at Carson McDowell, in a discussion about the future direction of planning policies in Northern Ireland. The event, which took place at the Grand Opera House on 14th June, brought together a number of individuals and organisations with interests in  the future of planning in the province and was chaired by Simon Turbitt, lawyer within Carson McDowell's Planning and Environmental Team.

Carson McDowell's Gary McGhee delivered a legal update on recent and upcoming changes to planning laws in Northern Ireland. The forum was well attended by individuals and organisations with roles and interests in planning and focussed on the three key planning issues of the moment: planning reform; planning policy and future challenges.
