HBF Planning Conference 2022,  Austin Court 21st September 2022

This year's HBF Planning Conference will be held at Austin Court on the 21st September. 

“Planning for the future….and what to do in the meantime…”

Planning continues to be a major challenge for the new homes industry, with significant reform seemingly always on the cards, but, as always, subject to the will of backbench MPs.

So what now?

The HBF Planning Conference will look in detail at the likely medium to long term impacts of the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill, including detail on The Infrastructure Levy, as well as the issues affecting the sector in the here and now.

The conference will look at the interface between planning and environmental protection, including nutrient and water neutrality, Biodiversity Net Gain and the future assessment regime.

There will be a focus on the future of local plan making in the context of the ‘duty to co-operate’ going and coming spatial development strategies.

Speakers will look at the issues of design and beauty and their place and role in the planning process, as well as the ever-emerging impact of continued digitisation.

It is, as ever, a busy time for those tasked with navigating the planning system– and the HBF Planning Conference is here to help chart a path through it.
