The annual event for key players within the public and private sectors to gather and address some of the most pertinent planning challenges related to housing in the Northern region and beyond.  

Research Partners:

Through insightful panel discussions, practical breakout sessions and extended speaker Q&As, the conference will  explore how the planning system can play a role in delivering enough housing in the North, and in meeting the growing demand for new homes in areas where we need them most. 

Join fellow planning practitioners and hear from:

  • Top players in planning and housing  from local and central government as well as the house building industry debating  how the planning system can maximise delivery across all tenures

  • Expert advice on local plan making  and the  impact of local plan reforms on housing delivery,  including detailed information on the evidence- based needed for a successful plan and  how to calculate and secure a five-year housing land supply

  • Key stakeholders in the Northern region on devolution, discussing  how strategic plans can be translated at local level and help deliver new housing  

  • Inspiring  local practitioners will be sharing  best practice examples of green belt release  and   development on brownfield land

Make sure you don’t miss out on this chance to  debate and share best practice with your peers  next month!
