The conference programme

The programme will offer something for everyone no matter where you're based or in what sector. There is also the opportunity to attend a number of crash courses where you can engage with your peers, broaden your understanding of the topic, develop your skills and apply them to your everyday work.

A wide range of study tours are being organised so that delegates can experience first-hand the very best examples of planning for the greater good in the East Midlands. Please note study tour details will be available on Monday 13 August. If you are booking your place before 13 August, we will email you directly to book your tour.
