At its best, place making involves delivering on a shared vision. When developers come together with local government and infrastructure providers, they can look beyond the specifics of a single site and think strategically about the long-term sustainability of place.
Within the current planning and housing policy context, this is not always easy. In practice, local housing and transport policy are often poorly integrated and negotiating shared objectives between local authorities and infrastructure providers can be challenging.
This event will explore best practice and leadership in delivering sustainable places. Our expert panel, featuring Rob Boughton of Thakeham Group, will discuss cases where cooperation has unlocked sustainable development. We will also consider how planning policy – both nationally and locally – can be strengthened to better integrate transport and housing policy.
