IHBC East Midlands Branch: An afternoon with Charles Mynors

9 November 2018

Focus on Curtilage Listing
An afternoon with Dr. Charles Mynors
13:00 – 16:45

Dr Charles Mynors is a lawyer with specialist expertise in planning and ecclesiastical law. He is also a Fellow of the RTPI and the RICS, and a member of the IHBC. After almost ten years as a planning officer in local government, he practised for over 25 years as a barrister from chambers in the Temple. He now heads up a team in the Law Commission, simplifying planning law in Wales; the Commission’s consultation paper, published in November 2017, has been described as “surprisingly readable”.

He has written a number of books on his specialist areas, three of which (those on listed buildings, trees, and advertisements) have gone into subsequent editions; each has become the standard textbook in its field. He is an adviser to the Prince’s Regeneration Trust. He lectures widely, and is a Visiting Professor at Oxford Brookes University and regular lecturer at Bath University.

Charles’s latest book – “Listed Buildings and Other Heritage Assets” (published by Swet & Maxwell in September 2017), 5th edn written jointly with Nigel Hewitson – is a comprehensive guide to the increasingly complex law in this area. It is an indispensable guide for practitioners, lawyers and judges and many others; it covers all the new legislation, the NPPF, and over 100 new cases, and applies in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
