We are delighted to announce that WYG is an associate sponsor for this year’s Planning Convention. The event, held by the Royal Town Planning Institute, will take place in London on 7th July.
This year’s convention takes as its theme ‘The New Politics for Planning’. It will set the agenda for what is likely to be another period of challenges, following the UK parliament election in May - and with other elections in the UK and Ireland due in 2016. A packed programme will examine local and neighbourhood planning, sub-national strategic planning and cooperation, and the changing relationship between the UK’s nations and regions.
Steven Fidgett, WYG’s Head of Planning UK, said: “We are very proud to be an associate sponsor for the Planning Convention which is the highlight of the planning profession’s calendar. The event provides invaluable information and discussion on many of the top issues in planning.”
WYG ranks as one of the top planning consultancies in the UK. Following the merger with Alliance Planning last year, our planning teams are now over 115-strong. Based in 13 offices across the UK, our planners combine essential local knowledge with an unrivalled depth of national and international expertise.
Our planning services include major planning applications, appeals and strategic project management as well as research, policy support and development management. Our clients reflect every aspect of the private, public and the voluntary sectors.
