2017 Programme

We are holding low-cost CPD Seminars in North, East, South and West Yorkshire. All at just £15 + vat for a 1/2 day seminar and study tour.

Barnsley Town Centre - recent development and future plans

  • Wednesday 27th September 2017
  • 14.00 - 16.20
  • Westgate Plaza, Barnsley

This Seminar and Study Tour will look at Barnsley Council's carefully structured approach to future development of the town centre. The market has recently been relocated and a new surface car park has been provided. The concrete brutalist buildings of the early 1970's are being demolished for redevelopment.

In partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.


We will be holding a seminar on Viability in October in Leeds. Details coming soon.
