In 2015 he commissioned the Redfern Review, and is currently leading of Labour’s housing policy development.

    Planning and Design, Chaired by Sir Terry Farrell

    8:15 amRICS, 12 Great George Street, London SW1P 3AD

    Panel: Clare Devine, CABE
    Martin Ivatt, Essex County Council
    Andrew Taylor, Countryside

    The success of the built environment is dependent on good design. Yet the NPPF makes little mention of design and its relationship to the planning process. This panel event explores the relationship between planning and design within the English planning system. It looks to the importance of good design in steering a scheme through the planning system and its impact on the successful delivery of new schemes.

    This event is open to Planning Futures members only. If you are interested in joining Planning Futures, please see our membership page, or contact Hannah David at

    Inside the HCLG Select Committee: A Q&A with Mr Clive Betts, Chair of the Housing, Communities, and Local Government Select Committee

    8:30 amCentral Hall Westminster, Storey's Gate, London, SW1H 9NH

    The role of the Housing, Communities and Local Government is to monitor the policy, administration and spending of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.  The Committee sets its own programme and chooses its own subjects for inquiries.

    At a time of considerable change within the planning system, the committee offers the opportunity for cross-party scrutiny of new planning legislation.  It also monitors ongoing delivery through the planning system, and is well placed to recommend changes in policy and practice.

    This event will consider the ongoing work of the committee, its priorities on subjects for investigation going forward and its views on emerging policy.

    Under review: Improving the policy making processes in planning

    8:15 amCentral Hall Westminster, Storey's Gate, London, SW1H 9NH

    Panel: Liz Peace OBE,
    Richard Harwood OBE QC
    Kevin Hollinrake MP

    It often seems that the planning system in England is under constant review and reform.

    This event will examine the process through which planning policy has been reviewed in recent decades, how subsequent decisions about new policy have been made, and why it often seems that we see constant change, with little progress.

    The event will explore the political processes that shape the adoption of new planning policy and consider how the policy making process can be improved going forward.
