The Government has stated its intention to follow the scientific advice in terms of its exit strategy. The health and safety of the nation must come first. However, as the nation returns to work, each sector of our economy will need to develop its own exit strategy. This round table will explore the most important elements in an exit strategy for the planning and housing sectors.
As the first event in a series, it will draw on the expertise of our sector-wide membership to highlight the most important issues faced by both the industry and by policy makers in restoring normal activity in the weeks, months and years ahead.
It will look at how the planning process may need to change in the short, medium and long term, and the whether the sector will require targeted support from Government.
The purpose of this event is to sketch out in broad brushstrokes the challenges that we face – as developers, consultants, planning lawyers’ local authorities and policy makers.
In the months that follow we will look at some of these issues in greater detail and help to define the sector’s response to the ongoing crises as events – and policy – develop.
