Living with Beauty. Will the planning reforms help or hinder Landscape Practice?

In 2020, the Government announced a "complete overhaul" of the planning system - the largest change to how places are planned, designed, and protected in more than a generation. 

Many of these changes respond specifically to the Living with Beauty report, and the ambition to raise the standard of design and "beauty" across the country.  The National Model Design code has now been published. The role of landscape planners and designers, in both the public and private sector, are at the heart of these reforms. 

Join us at this CPD conference to hear what the reforms mean for landscape and green infrastructure: including everything from Environmental Impact Assessment to Conservation Areas.  We’ll cover pattern books and design codes, the new policies around flooding and street trees, changes to LVIA and other assessments, the role of the new Design and Placemaking Officers, and the profound way all of this could change the nature of landscape practice. 

The devolved nations are also going through their own reforms, including the upcoming NPF4 in Scotland, and PPW11 in Wales.  And beyond that: the England planning reforms take lessons from zoning approaches used in the USA and elsewhere.  Come to our CPD event to see how we can all learn from best practice elsewhere, and how we can avoid the pitfalls.
