Promoting and enhancing best practice and technical expertise

International Summit: Delivering Land Assembly - Day 2 Conference Only

Given that there is a global need to deliver housing, commerce, modern services and infrastructure, and to regenerate towns and cities, what can legislators and practitioners in the UK learn from how other nations deliver these things to improve best practice at home? And what could our international allies learn from the best of the UK system? We aim to explore legislation and best practice from the UK and across the globe to examine these questions in greater detail in this event, which is UK focusedand aimed at a UK audience, but with an international dimension.
