On Monday 16 September Jonathan Jenkin, Managing Director of Planning & Design addressed the 90 plus strong audience at Surveyors RECAP 2019, part of a series of seminars providing an invaluable CPD (Continuing Professional Development) update for rural practitioners and surveyors.

A non-profit making company, the aim of Surveyors RECAP Ltd is to broaden the knowledge of fellow rural professionals. The annual series of evening seminars they organise provide an important opportunity to explore the most pertinent rural topics facing the industry. A series of five consecutive Monday evenings which can be attended individually, or as a series, full attendance can give 15 hours or more CPD / Lifelong Learning as well as providing an excellent networking opportunity.

Hosted at the Roman Way Hotel in Cannock, Staffordshire and now in into its 34th year, this ever popular series updates rural surveyors and practitioners of all experiences, welcoming members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) as well as farmers, lawyers, accountants, farm secretaries and other rural practitioners.

With vast experience of working on rural projects for homeowners, landowners and farmers in rural areas Planning & Design are perfectly positioned to address the audience. Under a general title of “Recent Changes to Planning Policy Affecting Development in the Rural Environment”, Jonathan updated the audience on changes in Permitted Development including changes of use to Class Q, which allows Change of Use and conversion of agricultural buildings to dwellings and Class R, which allows Change of Use from agriculture to a flexible business use. In addition Jonathan looked at ways of delivering a net gain for biodiversity, and possible changes in legislation due to the escalating climate crisis.

Speaking about his participation in the event Jonathan said:

“As a company we regularly run a series of seminars for architects, surveyors and agents, setting out changes in planning policies and new Government guidance. RECAP is a CPD event for young surveyors and with an audience of almost 100 young professionals it is always an enjoyable event, where I get the chance to run through real life examples, and they get the chance to challenge me.”
