Due to the General Election this event will now be moved to Wednesday 13th November. 


At this in-person session we will be hearing about the different roles of those who work with planners to deliver sustainable and healthy communities. We will be hearing from speakers focusing on the role of Public Health, the role of the NHS, and health case law including developer contributions. We will then explore how we can all work effectively together to improve equity in health especially in areas where there are particular challenges to both mental and physical health and wellbeing, considering how the wider environment plays a significant role in improving positive health outcomes.

What will you learn

  • Examine what can’t or shouldn’t be funded via developer contributions, pertinent case law - Sam Grange, Shoosmiths
