Online (live webinar)
Environmental, Planning


This year, instead of our traditional planning day, Cornerstone Planning Team will be hosting an online series of free webinars.

In addition to the live webinars, we will also be releasing an exclusive recorded interview with renowned environmental lawyer Richard Buxton, of Richard Buxton Solicitors:

Planning and Climate Change: Through the Lens of a Life Fighting for the Environment

What was it about using the law to protect the environment that enticed Richard Buxton away from a career in international shipping, on secondment in Tokyo, to a masters degree in environmental science and policy at Yale and then on to 30 years working with a small team, fighting for communities and individuals to advance environmental causes? Find out, as Estelle Dehon talks to Richard about his life in the law.

The interview will be available to view on our website from 10am on Monday 2nd November.
