The third Conference of the Platform of experts in Planning Law was a success!

On the first day of the conference a case was discussed. Fred Hobma (The Netherlands), Helle Tegner Anker (Denmark) and Marcin Lachowski (Poland) gave an presentation about their reaction to the case.

In the afternoon a (public) scientific symposium took place ‘Correlation of planning law and renewable energies with focus on wind power plants’ with several key note speakers.
Rachelle Alterman (Israel) evaluated the conference and pointed out the importance of this platform.

All participants expressed their intention for a follow up to the further exchange of knowledge through this website and a third conference next year.

The second day of the conference included a cultural program. A boat-cruise with the focus on ‘Urban development along Berlin waterways’ very much appreciated by the members of the Platform.
