Interest in the concept of long-term stewardship continues to gain momentum among politicians and practitioners, but realising the full opportunity of this ambition requires an early alignment of policy, finance, political will, and the meaningful participation of local people in the process. The TCPA has produced a wealth of guidance and resources to support those interested in this task.

This webinar, part of the TCPA New Communities Group series, will focus on the hooks local authorities have to secure stewardship through the planning system. From Local Plan policy to Design Codes, discussion will look at when and how to secure implementation of long-term stewardship in a new community through planning. 

The webinar will be chaired by TCPA Vice Chair Catriona Riddell, with contributions from speakers including Katy Lock (Director of Communities, TCPA), Mark Patchett (Stewardship and placemaking consultant), Richard Ford (Partner, Pinsent Masons LLP), Philip Bowsher (Head of Environment, Parks Trust MK), Robin Waddle (Business Development Director, GreenBelt).
