Just announced: Brandon Lewis MP, Minister of State for Housing and Planning to attend
The UK population is projected to grow to over 70 million by 2030, requiring the equivalent of 20 towns the size of Coventry, Belfast or Cardiff to be built every year. Demand will be on planners to deliver places that accommodate this growth.
The RTPI’s Annual Planning Convention is your chance to critically examine the best solutions that planners in the UK and internationally can provide in tackling the issues of infrastructure, housing, economic growth and the environment now and in the future, at a time when planners are also facing a number of wider challenges in adopting new policy frameworks within finite resources.
We’re delighted that Lord Adonis has confirmed to make the opening keynote speech on the infrastructure challenge, which will address the foundations of better planning solutions. We'll also be joined by Andrew Jones MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport who will be delivering a ministerial address.
The Planning Convention will also feature a wide range of panel debates led by key influencers on major issues: energy, smart cities, land value capture and design, and a chance to hear what the planners of tomorrow feel will be the key issues for the future. The RTPI Planning Convention will be the key event for planners in 2016!
