About the 2015 Conference

The 2015 Planning Law Conference took place on 3 March 2015 and was a great success. The conference provided planning law professionals with clear updates from the planning regulators on the current regime. Practitioners and planning law professionals alike were provided with a comprehensive and practical update on significant developments in planning legislation, policies and case law. There was a particular focus on housing supply and delivery, commercial redevelopment, judicial review, the NPPF, and a guide to the recent changes in legislation and their implications. Expert speakers addressed the issues from different perspectives, providing delegates with a wide-ranging outlook, as well as strategies to plan for recent and forthcoming developments.
