Some things have not changed since last year’s conference. Economic growth is still the government’s first priority for planning, the economy is still bumping along the bottom and the North-South divide is gaping ever wider. But other things are changing. Inspectors’ reports are putting flesh on the NPPF, viability is coming to the fore as the key issue in planning, and the ground rules on employment land may be about to change, with new guidance on its way.
This B&W will:
- Inform you about Government policy and guidance and how you should deliver it
- Help you create a robust evidence base and sound policies to support economic development
- Deliver the NPPF for economic issues
- Tell you about viability and market signals
- Explore how planning should deal with the recession
- Discuss the issues with leading experts in the field
Attending this B&W will enable you to:
1. Assess how your policies may perform in the current climate and if they need to change
2. Peer inside forecasting models
3. Learn from market practitioners
4. Predict what the market will deliver and when
5. Understand how to respond to market signals
6. Know how to deliver and pay for your strategies
7. Discover how planning can work to support sustainable economic growth
