a fantastic success!
The 2015 Planning Convention has been a sell out success with over 430 attendees. This year’s theme, New politics for Planning has delivered many memorable moments with exciting debates, news and updates.
We’d like to say thank you to all of our delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for helping us make the Convention such a success.
Highlights have included the globally renowned Eugenie Birch of the World Urban Campaign addressing the need for the world’s politicians to understand the importance of planning on a number of issues including affordable housing, sustainable transport and reducing the environmental impact on cities.
Waheed Nazir of Birmingham City Council outlined the importance of talented planning professionals in local authorities and the private sector and the need for them to be empowered through early engagement in politics.
Brandon Lewis MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning also sent a video message to delegates outlining the government’s housing agenda and that even though house building is increasing, more well built homes need to be built for the future.
Trudi Elliott CBE, Chief Executive, RTPI said: "With cutting edge speakers of both topical and international importance as well as fantastic networking, feedback from delegates has been that this has been the best convention to date.
