1 April 2014, ILEC Conference Centre, London

The National Planning Summit set to be the annual forum to address the latest, most pertinent issues facing the planning system today. Gathering planning professionals from both the public and private sector, across the nation, the Summit is designed to tackle only the biggest, absolute need-to-know issues you face today.

The inaugural Summit will explore how the planning system can enable and accelerate growth, both locally and nationally. Over 300+ professionals in the industry have taken part in the research to put together the programme, which will delve into issues ranging from challenges within NPPF on the ground, to examining viability and development management, to looking at how LEP growth plans and town centre management play a role in planning.

Through keynote speeches, breakout sessions and topical debates, the Summit will examine these and more issues in great depth and detail to develop, together as an industry, solutions to some of the biggest challenges you face today.

We are pleased to announce that Steve Quartermain, Chief Planner, Department for Communities and Local Government will be presenting our morning Keynote Address.
