Christopher Young QC
Barrister, No5 Chambers
Chris acts for many of the UK’s leading developers and house builders, with an enviable track record at appeal. He acts on some of largest development proposals in the UK, including several new settlements such as both the Rudgate and Cattal proposals in Yorkshire, and Sibson Garden Village in Huntingdonshire. He also acts on major urban extensions such as the 5,000 dwelling development at Sherford in Plymouth.
The majority of his appeal work involves cases recovered by the Secretary of State. He advises Tesco Stores on a national basis, as well as investment funds such as Rockspring, and major landowners such as Tarmac and the University of Reading.

A Scottish perspective on community participation in planning and other issues by Kate Houghton RTPI
One of the best planning law conferences in the annual calendar - you can always expect speakers who are both erudite and entertaining, professional organisation and an unparalleled opportunity to network in the bar and disco!
Principal Solicitor, Environment Agency
The Oxford Planning Conference is an excellent opportunity to keep up, both with the new developments and thinking in a rapidly changing world and also with old friends and colleagues. It is a winning combination of education and sociability which I always make it a point to try not to miss.
