This half day conference is a must for all planners working in both development management and forward plans. 

This event would also be of interest to members of the RICS. 

The national housing crisis and slow emergence of the construction industry after the global economic depression has radically changed the viability of many development sites.  Increasing environmental, decontamination, Community Infrastructure Levy, Section 106, development finance and delivery costs all erode the viability of delivering sites. 

With the constant ‘refinements’ undertaken to the national planning system by Central Government, certainty for developers is difficult to provide and consequently the viability of many sites is in a state of flux. 

This seminar has been prepared with leading practitioners from the public and private sector with a view to demystifying the ‘dark art‘ of negotiating viability from both a planning policy and practical viewpoint. 

The event will include presentations and a hands-on workshop to enable attendees to have first-hand experience of worked examples.
