NPPF Implications for London - what next?
A Planning in London magazine Seminar
Hosted by Berwin Leighton Paisner, Adelaide House, London Bridge, London,
EC4R 9HA on Friday 25th November 2011, 8:30 - 11:30
The new National Planning Policy Framework sets the background to all planning
decisions. Most controversial has been the presumption in favour of sustainable
development where new local Neighbourhood Plans don’t exist. What are the
implications for London where new neighbourhood groups are making their
power felt? How are local authorities managing the emerging relationships? This
is a technical seminar for all those working in the built environment, with views
from local group leaders.
Join us for this special Planning in London seminar which will bring together key
protagonists from government and the market to debate and discuss the impact
and opportunities being created by the reforms for everyone in the industry
The programme will cover;
· How are new neighbourhood forums and neighbourhood plans emerging in
London?
· Understanding the different approaches and relationship between
neighbourhood plans and local plans?
· Will neighbourhoods be able to achieve their goals, or will the NPPF stand in
the way?
· Will neighbourhood plans overlapping with a BID?
· What happens if there is no neighborhood or Local Development Framework
in place?
· Do developers think the new system will work?
· Will we get better development?
