POS has joined forces with a team from DCLG led by the Chief Planner, Steve Quartermain, to discuss the implications and to answer questions on the details of the Localism Bill at a one day event in central London to be held on Monday 24 January 2011.
Other eminent speakers will provide commentary and ideas, including the practical implications of neighbourhood planning and cross boundary strategic working, with a further opportunity for discussion.
Stephen Tapper, President of POS, said "Planning Officers will be in the forefront of implementing the wide ranging changes introduced in the Bill - this early event on the subject is one planners cannot afford to miss."
