Kindly sponsored by Savills and Local Dialogue, the RTPI ran an invitation-only breakfast and a public fringe at the LibDem Conference in Brighton on Monday 24 September.
The Rt Hon Don Foster MP, DCLG minister, who spoke at our lunchtime fringe, stood up for the vital work planners in both the public and private sectors carry out: "One thing I can put firmly on the record is that planners are important in delivering the growth and jobs we need and improving quality of the lives of people in this country".
A podcast of the lunchtime fringe can be heard here.
