Alongside Grant Butterworth, head of planning at Leicester City Council and David Morris, planning and operations director at developer Catesby Estates, Rosewell will discuss zonal planning.

The panel will weigh up the challenges and opportunities that the proposed new zonal planning system presents for planning for housing, and examine what resources are needed to help support its introduction. 

The online conference will feature government representatives, local authorities and developers, who are set to discuss the biggest changes facing the planning sector, including how to mitigate the environmental impact of future developments.
