Chief planning inspector to retire

  • Comment

The chief planning inspector Peter Burley is to retire at the end of September

Peter Burley took over the role of chief planning inspector at the Planning Inspectorate in April 2012, having previously worked as the Inspectorate’s Director for Wales.

Burley originally joined the planning inspectorate back in 1989 and is a qualified planner and landscape architect.

The Planning Inspectorate’s chief executive, Michael Pitt said: ‘Peter’s role as chief planning inspector is a high profile and demanding job involving the professional leadership of over 300 inspectors. Peter has delivered this responsibility to the full and has made a great contribution as advisor to ministers and protector of the reputation and independence of the Inspectorate.’

Helen Adlard will replace Burley as the chief planning inspector after his departure.

Adlard has practiced as a planning lawyer and played a key role in setting up the planning regime for national infrastructure under the Planning Act 2008.
