Arup, 3 Piccadilly Place,Manchester M1 2BN, UK
Join Arup to participate in a focus group for as part of their research on ‘Investing in Delivery’ of planning services in local planning authorities (LPAs). This event is open to Senior and Managerial Level Planners from both the private and public sectors.
For this research Arup are investigating the level of investment in public sector planning services across the North West and South East regions and how this is related to performance and delivery. We intend to use this research to provide evidence to government on behalf of planning services to influence change at a national level.
The research focuses on senior and managerial level planners as we welcome views from planners who oversee the delivery of planning services and therefore have a wealth of knowledge and experience on this topic.
The sessions will take place as a round table event where we will be inviting engagement and input from attendees on the following key topics; planning resource, changing planning budgets and income streams, service performance, the influence of planning within the wider Local Authority, and culture and behaviours of LPAs.
Refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity for networking.
