Overcoming Common Challenges across the UK and Ireland through Planning

Planning powers are devolved within the United Kingdom. But the challenges of delivering housing,infrastructure and enhancing the environment are common challenges faced by decision makers in each of the countries. For the first time, the annual PIPA conference will open up to politicians in all countries of the United Kingdom and Ireland to explore common themes faced by local elected decision makers, to learn from each other and take back with them the tools to help them make the most of their planning decision making powers.

To be eligible to attend this conference you must be a politician. In your booking please state which body you are elected to. If you are not a politician or unsure if you are eligible please submit via an enquiry form and your details will be put on a waiting list in the event that spaces become available. Places will be limited to two per organisation. More will be opened up if spaces become available.
