The Northern Ireland Planning Conference is returning in person in 2022 and will be held at the Europa hotel on Wednesday 21st September 2022.

At the heart of planning is supporting the right kind of development in the right places. A central outcome for this is delivering well designed places which are more climate friendly and resilient, and make economic sense for the place too.

Through our planning decisions, are we locking in behaviours that are adding to the problem of climate change? How could we improve decision-making so that the right outcomes for climate and people are being made? Shaping places that are walkable, places that are sociable, streets that prioritise people over cars, and the strength of community needed to tackle uncertainties.

Can we maximise the economic benefits of a climate focus - helping support growth of green jobs, retrofitting buildings, supporting growth of new sectors that will have many of the future solutions we still need to find to solve the climate crisis.

We need to build in resilience, adaptability and preparedness for the places that will suffer the strongest impacts of climate change - towns and city centres, areas of deprivation, coastal areas, areas prone to flooding, areas with a high reliance of jobs linked to fossil fuel industries etc. 

Join us at the Conference to discuss these issues.  #NIPlannerlive
