Full 2017 Convention speaker line-up now confirmed!
As the UK prepares itself for the upcoming election, and one year since the Brexit vote, it’s fair to say that the last 12 months have seen a dramatic change in political climate. Faced with an uncertain future, we need better planning now more than ever. A society that works for all can not happen without investment in planning - and planners.
On 21 June 2017, expert speakers from around the world will come together at the Planning Convention to address the question ‘How can planners contribute to building a stronger, inclusive and sustainable future for all?’
From devolution and housing, to smart and sustainable planning, our packed programme will offer delegates the chance to hear from over 50 key influencers in the industry, as well as the chance to learn from one another, debate, discuss and find creative solutions to the most pressing problems facing the profession.
Other highlights include expert-led study tours, a chance to put your questions to 5 Chief Planners from across the UK, a variety of topical breakout sessions and addresses from Gavin Barwell MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning, and Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor for Housing, Greater London Authority.
