POS London

POS London is a very active region. We have five networks, who meet throughout the year. 

POS London is the main network aimed at Chief Planning Officers or their equivalents, but there are four further networks under the ALBPO banner. This stands for the Association of London Borough Planning Officers. It predates POS London and this network of heads of service was expanded and absorbed into POS London when it was formed in 2010. The four ALBPO networks are:

  • POS ALBPO Spatial Planning aimed at Heads of Spatial Planning or their equivalents
  • POS ALBPO Development Management aimed at Heads of Development Management or their equivalents
  • POS ALBPO Planning Enforcement aimed at Heads of Planning Enforcement or their equivalents 
  • POS ALBPO Technical Support aimed at Heads of Technical Support or their equivalents

 For details of future POS London or ALBPO sessions see our Events Page.

POS London Alumni

POS London also has an Alumni network for all those POS London or POS ALBPO planners who have retired, otherwise left local government service or been promoted above the chief planner level and want to keep in touch with their former network colleagues. We meet twice a year in a central London pub in the evening to catch up, reminisce, put the world to right (AKA have a moan) etc. Contact Mike Kiely if you want to join us.
