18 months after from the Localism Act and one year on from the National Planning Policy Framework the Historic Towns Forum invites you to join our panel of experts to find out exactly where we are now in relation to planning, historic towns, and law.
In addition to learning the lessons from a year of practical neighbourhood planning, we look at the Red Tape Challenge, the Taylor Review and where we stand in relation to historic planning and government guidance.
With speakers from Bircham Dyson Bell, the Department for Communities and Local Government, Locality, English Heritage, the Historic Towns Forum, Planning Consultants CgMs, and with prices from as low as £50, can you afford not to join us?
Local Authority elected members and officers from all disciplines; community leaders and representatives of community groups, civic and amenity societies; professionals concerned with all aspects of planning, conservation, tourism, traffic management, urban design and economic development.
