The PAS Conference is all about supporting and building our peer network. While the world focuses on the immediate impacts of the White Paper, we’re inviting our officer and councillor peers to join us in going beyond that to look at how resources, policy, development management and politics need to come together now and in the future to deliver an effective planning system.
The conference will be a great opportunity to do some practical learning with colleagues that have been delivering work directly at councils, to hear from Chief Executives and Leaders on how big topics like devolution and the fast-approaching post-RSG world will mean for how councils deliver planning on the ground. We’ve also invited a range of guest speakers from government and within and beyond the world of public sector planning to challenge and debate the future direction of the planning system.
The agenda is still to be finalised, but will be full of expert speakers on topical and relevant planning matters. One attendee from our last conference said: ''A diverse range of thought-provoking topics covered very well'' Alan Coleman, Worcester City Council.
We will be in touch with delegates shortly to confirm further agenda items, as well as accommodation details in Wolverhampton (centrally located close to venue).
