22nd February, 2023 : 10:00 am 11:00 am

From the changes to housing needs forecasting, and a new structure for development plans, to new powers for Development Corporations, planning reform and revised national policy will have significant implications for the planning system and how we might plan strategically for housing growth, and the mechanisms to deliver.

This online briefing will set out what the package of planning reforms outlined in the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill and Consultation on the National Planning Policy Framework might mean for those planning for and delivering new communities. It will include an opportunity for discussion and for NCG members and other attendees to share their views. The briefing will be provided by TCPA Director of Policy Dr Hugh Ellis and TCPA Director of Communities and FJ Osborn Fellow, Katy Lock.

This session will be essential for councillors, developers, consultants, business leaders, council officers, community groups, architects and designers, students and anyone who is interested in the creation of new communities.
