following out of land and community workshop - was there a follow up session? those interested in (local), temporary and permanent (permaculture) spaces and their role in building/ sustaining /generating movement capacity, and nice stories of peoples projects, should look at papers webmounted here

Hey Alex et al

No, the followup Land and Community session never did happen.

Thanks to everyone who came to the main L&C session, I enjoyed it a lot.

I for one would be happy to get together sometime to talk more about such things - I don't think this will be scheduled at Knowledge Lab 2, but maybe at 3 or 4, especially if we decide to give one of them a Human Rights focus.

I would recommend the chapter 7 website here http://www.thelandisours.org/chapter7/ (even though it hasn't been updated for a long time and so doesn't include recent caselaw) as a place to start for practical info on the legalities of the sorts of places Alex and I were talking about.

A slightly more recent factual summary of the effect of ECHR article 8 (right to respect for the home) on planning law can be found here: http://www.planning-inspectorate.gov.uk/pins/publications/journals/archive/25_journal/pins25_human.htm

Looking forward to seeing some of you back here in sunny Lancaster in February...

Mike
