Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Planning Inspectorate guidance – updated 01 April 2020
In response to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), The Planning Inspectorate has published guidance on site visits, hearings, inquiries and events.
Like many in the planning system, we have been making difficult decisions to balance the processing of casework whilst ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our Inspectors and casework staff.
All casework events in the near future including site visits, hearings and inquiries have been postponed and our staff are working from home as the Bristol office building is closed.
Although keeping casework moving is extremely important, our top priority is to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and the public. These arrangements will continue while the UK government advice on social distancing remains in place.
