Housing remains contentious. It is a Government priority and considerable effort and legislative reform has been undertaken – the Housing and Planning Act and the Neighbourhood Planning Bill, and we have had recently the Housing White Paper considering further reforms.
Whether the government targets are achievable or not, they are motivated to deliver more housing; and the professions must adapt to deal with the changes in legislative reform; and of the opportunities and frustrations that arise from such change.
There continues to be tension between the visions of planning authorities visions, those of developers and of the communities affected. It is this clash of visions and interests that makes planning intrinsically contentious.
The planning framework creates the rules of engagement, and the battleground will be fought at inquiries and in the courts.
This one day programme will provide practical commentary between law and practice to bring planning professionals up-to-date on the latest developments on property and planning matters relating to housing delivery.
