Developing land for housing is a complex business and there are many stages in what can be a long process. The CLA is hosting two seminars for landowners that will take you through the key planning elements and provide an expert overview of the essential considerations.

You will hear presentations from a range of specialist organisations who will provide up-to-date and relevant information on planning, legal, financial and other key criteria for land development.

They include:

· Nick Harper and Chris Haworth of Huntstowe Land, land development promoters;

· Philip Villars of Indigo, an award-winning planning consultancy firm; and

· Tim Bacon and Guy Longhurst of Ellisons Solicitors, experts in development agreements.

At each event a senior government planning official will update delegates on current planning policy – summarising changes and looking to what the future may have in store. In Essex this will be Steve Quartermain, the government’s Chief Planner, and in Suffolk you will hear from Michael Bingham, the government’s Head of Planning Policy.

The CLA will provide its own policy update and explain how it is influencing decision-makers at all levels to ensure national planning recognises the importance of rural housing.
