Planning doesn't seem to be out of the headlines for long at the moment. Just as we were getting into the swing of the latest series of reforms, including the Growth and Infrastructure Bill and the Taylor Review of planning policy, along comes the Deputy Prime Minister and Planning Minister's calls for a 21st century garden cities and suburbs.
The TCPA has strongly welcomed Clegg's and Boles' comments and marks this down as the latest success in our longstanding Garden Cities campaign. It builds upon the Prime Minister's support for Garden Cities announced last March; recognition of the Garden City principles in the Government's National Planning Policy Framework; and support for 'locally planned large-scale development' in the Housing Strategy launched last November 2011.
This timely conference will build upon the latest announcements and take the debate to the next step – the planning and delivery of 21st century garden cities and suburbs. The TCPA will be launching a new garden cities guide for local authorities at the conference and we have an excellent line-up of speakers who will focus on the practical aspects of delivery including leadership, planning, land assembly, finance, skills and delivery.
