National Planning Summit 2018

This year’s National Planning Summit is the must-attend forum for planning and regeneration professionals, to address the biggest challenges facing the planning system today. Our main focus this year is to understand how to maximise sustainable growth opportunities across the country. 

Taking place on 10th May in London, the event comes at a particularly pivotal time. With a revised and updated NPPF to be published this spring and the review of the Community Infrastructure Levy as well as the Draft London Plan, the Summit will be discussing the latest policy updates, whilst also featuring sessions that offer day-to-day, practical information and experience to help you navigate the planning system at a local level.

  • Gain new insights from policy makers and planning experts on where the opportunities for sustainable growth are this year

  • Be at the forefront of planning and discover how innovative places have already started to incorporate new and emerging technologies
