What constitutes ‘Demolition’ under S74 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990? In this episode, Charlie Banner QC and John Steel discuss the Court of Appeal decision in Clin v Walter Lilly & Co. Ltd [2021] EWCA Civ 136 which addressed that very question. The podcast seeks to contextualise the decision of the Court in the history of the litigation, the relevant planning statutes and the applicable case law, namely the House of Lords decision in Shimizu [1997] 1 WLR 168. The discussion features an analysis of the Court of Appeal’s decision and the submissions of the Parties before the Court.

To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day and mark the “Choose to challenge” theme, we are pleased to share our latest podcast episode with Fionnuala McCredie QC and Lucy Garrett QC. Fionnuala and Lucy are joined by Sally Davies (Mayer Brown), Catherine Wolfenden (Osborne Clarke) and Rebecca Williams (Watson Farley & Williams) who are all long standing clients and friends of Keating Chambers, as well as being past recipients of The Lawyer’s “Hot 100” accolade. They each share career highlights, challenges they have overcome and amusing anecdotes and in doing so cover important topics such as mentoring, stereotypes, imposter syndrome and shared parental leave. It was a privilege to have an open conversation with these five women who are each contributing to the development of a gender equal world by challenging existing prejudices and reaching down and across to help other women reach their full potential.
