Politicians poised for Sheffield conference

12 October 2010

Bob Neill MPPlanning minister Bob Neill MP and Cllr David Smith from the Local Government Association are confirmed as the keynote speakers at this year's Politicians in Planning Network (known as PIPA) conference on 6 November in Sheffield. The theme for the 2010 Conference is Planning & Localism: Delivering Community Aspirations. 

PIPA, an RTPI Network, is a non-partisan organisation which aims to influence planning policies and to press decision-makers to address planning-related issues effectively. 

The conference is timely, coming as it does between the Comprehensive Spending Review and the widely anticipated launch of the Decentralisation and Localism Bill, which is likely to contain significant changes to England and Wales's planning system. The conference is kindly sponsored by the Planning Advisory Service. 

Book now

Places at the Conference are available for Councillors at all democratic levels - Parish, District & County - and are free and very easy to book: just email pipa@rtpi.org.uk or phone 01789 763006. 

Membership of PIPA is free, and all those involved in local, democratic planning are encouraged to join and attend the conference.
