Northern Ireland’s Planning Appeals Commission (PAC) has announced plans to pilot remote hearings in selected cases within the next four to six weeks.
The announcement follows repeated calls from lawyers and the construction industry for Northern Ireland’s planning system to catch up with the rest of UK on remote hearings.
The Planning Inspectorate in England and Wales held its first remote hearing last month, and Scotland is following closely behind.
MKA Planning welcomes this news, which will allow the development and construction sectors to keep moving and aid the recovery of the Northern Ireland economy.
If you wish to appeal a planning decision please contact Matt or one of the team on (028) 71 311 551 or at email@example.com.
