Almost 100 people attended the panel session at the 16 May General Meeting. The topic of heritage protection created great debate, and panelists included the Chair of the State Planning Commission Michael Lennon, the CEO of Housing Industry Association Stephen Knight, Professor Elizabeth Vines and Dr Darren Peacock, CEO of the National Trust. Chaired by journalist and broadcaster Carole Whitelock, the evening gave the audience new insights into the upcoming changes to the planning system and they may erode our already fragile heritage protection system.
