Planning for Housing - Northern Edition

Through insightful panel discussions, practical breakout sessions and extended speaker Q&As, the conference will explore how the planning system can play a role in delivering enough housing in the North, and in meeting the growing demand for new homes in areas where we need them most.

Join fellow planning practitioners and hear from:

Top players in planning and housing from local and central government as well as the house building industry debating how the planning system can maximise delivery across all tenures

Expert advice on local plan making and the impact of local plan reforms on housing delivery, including detailed information on the evidence- based needed for a successful plan and how to calculate and secure a five-year housing land supply

Key stakeholders in the Northern region on devolution, discussing how strategic plans can be translated at local level and help deliver new housing

Inspiring local practitioners will be sharing best practice examples of green belt release and development on brownfield land

Make sure you don’t miss out on this chance to debate and share best practice with your peers next month!
