Planning to deliver


Half Day conference

Planning is seen as the biggest barrier to delivering new homes. How do we deliver the Mayor’s housing targets? How does planning impact on our ability to build suitable homes to cater for the current shortage and win local community support? We discuss and debate the key issues on delivery and planning.

Gain insight to

  • The Mayor’s new powers
  • The homebuilder’s perspective
  • The decision making process
  • Key factors for winning planning approval
