Brandon Lewis MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning will be delivering this year's ministerial address at the Planning Convention.
Planning Convention 2015 is an event not to be missed. Taking place in central London on Tuesday 7 July 2015, the day will feature an inspiring line-up of expert speakers, with key note plenary presentations and break-out sessions.
Our theme this year, The New Politics for Planning, will set the agenda at the start of what is likely to be another period of challenges, following the UK parliament election in May - and with other elections in the UK and Ireland due in 2016. A packed programme will examine local and neighbourhood planning, sub-national strategic planning and cooperation, and the changing relationship between the UK’s nations and regions.
We will discuss and debate new forms of engagement, environmental protection and the global priorities for planning. Speakers and delegates will also reflect on the changes going on across the UK in terms of shifting powers and responsibilities, and provide attendees with intelligence on how these are likely to affect planning policy and practice.
Cath Ranson, RTPI President: "Another fantastic Convention and a hugely popular event with delegates. I'd like to personally thank everyone for making this a very special Convention which has yet again set the planning agenda. Please ensure you book for 2015"
