We need to deliver development. But we are still committed to development being led by local plans, with sustainable development the objective. Part of what has to be provided for through local plans has to be identified through cross boundary working – strategic planning by localism.
Are these requirements completely incompatible? In many cases the responsibility for making plans lies with authorities opposed to development. More sustainable development isn’t naturally the easiest for the market to deliver. Choices made through plans have to be rooted in evidence. How can we get smarter at putting plans in place that can promote sustainability and demonstrate deliverable development?
The briefing and workshop will examine how, with contributions from six speakers all in the theme of ‘plan and deliver’.
