About Fenella Collins
Fenella Collins is a chartered surveyor and the CLA’s Head of Planning. Her role is to research, develop and promote CLA policy with regards to planning issues as they affect rural areas, and designated areas too.
She provides advice to CLA members on planning law and policy. In addition, she is responsible for developing and maintaining good working relationships with relevant government officials, evaluating and responding to national consultations relating to the planning system.
Fenella’s particular policy challenge is to devise better ways of achieving more rational and flexible planning policies for rural areas to provide for the needs of rural businesses, rural communities and the natural environment.
This seminar will provide the latest on CLA lobbying work which aims to deregulate the planning system so that it becomes a catalyst for rural business innovation, and not a barrier to development.
