Place and Power: land-use, planning and energy
16 June 2015
Traditional assumptions about land-use planning are being shaken by a number of factors. These include the rapidly reducing cost of solar power; new and innovative business models in the energy sector, the ability of local authorities and community groups to generate electricity and make money; and the need to re-shape our towns and cities to become more resilient to the effects of climate change. What will all this mean for the way we use land? How are local leaders taking this forward? And what are the benefits - for communities, local authorities and businesses. This cutting edge conference will bring together leading national and international experts, politicians and leaders from business, academia and local communities. Attendance is vital for Councillors, senior council officers, planners, consultants, energy executives, lawyers, LEP's, envronmentalists, community energy activists and academics
