Understanding The New Planning Reforms
Thursday 3rd July 2008
CBI Conference Centre, London WC1A 1DU
On 6th April 2008 the new national planning application 1App forms came into force. The announcement regarding the Planning Applications review by David Pretty and Joanna Killian is just one of many measures the Government is launching to try to speed up the planning application system.
With so many fundamental changes taking place, architects cannot afford to be out of date with what they must do to receive planning permission. The reform of the planning system has been happening for a while, and it is difficult for architects to stay up to date. The changes aim to decrease the time
it takes to get planning permission, but will it actually help? What effect will the rules have on architecture? how much will the planning process now cost for architects?
The AJ’s new conference, Understanding the New Planning Reforms, will provide you with all the information you need to ensure you have the best chance of your projects receiving planning permission.
This unmissable one-day conference will provide you with a one-stop-shop for:
Explaining exactly what the changes are and how they will impact architects
Clarifying what content needs to be included in Design and Access Statements
Providing you with an opportunity to question policymakers and planning officers – including the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Planning Inspectorate, the Planning Advisory Service, and CABE
