The focus of this event is on how two key sets of reforms, the Localism Act and the National Planning Policy Framework, are working through in practice. By the end of September, the true impact of these changes will have begun to take shape.

This event will provide more clarity on key emerging issues through the expertise of the speakers and by drawing on the experience of the delegates. Both policy and development management will be addressed.
