NI Construction Group calls for virtual planning appeal hearings


Members of the Northern Ireland Construction Group – which includes RSUA – have written to the Planning Appeals Commissioner to express concern that, unlike other jurisdictions, the Planning Appeals Commission has not introduced virtual hearings to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the planning system.

With the construction and development industry seeking certainty about this piece of the planning process, the letter urges the Commissioner to introduce virtual hearings without delay. You can read the full letter here.
