Many commentators have said that after over a decade of erosion, there needs to be a layer of planning between the National Planning Policy Framework and the localism inspired Local and Neighbourhood Plans. Local Enterprise Partnerships, in part, fill that gap in relation to infrastructure – but who else is thinking strategically at a district, county, sub-region or regional scale?

After one hundred years of planning, what can we as a profession offer to the public, investors, the economy and our society as our strategic legacy?

This targeted programme seeks to provide different perspectives on this challenge.

Delegates will hear:

  • About the overall position, effective co-operation and the six general principles
  • From local authorities who are sharing services and moving towards merging together in an attempt to plan for more rational areas and to be more efficient
  • About the role of LEPs
  • About Neighbourhood Plans and how they fit into the current system
