This unique conference has been run annually (sometimes bi-annually) since 1991 and is now established as the principal event of its kind for administrative and support staff working within the planning service.
The event is an excellent opportunity for administrative and technical support staff involved in the planning process to meet colleagues from other authorities, exchange experience and learn about current best practice and forthcoming changes which may affect them.
The next Conference is due to take place on 23 May 2019. While the revised NPPF represents a shift in some important elements of national planning policy, this year's conference will be focusing on some of the significant "background" developments and less high profile changes in the world of planning. Our panel of contributors and the topics they will be discussing include:
The Conference will be chaired by CHRIS WEETMAN, Independant Planning Consultant and TRA Associate.
Although not delivering a formal presentation this year, TRA Senior Associate VIVIEN GREEN will be attending and will contribute to the round table discussion.

I can’t put into words the course’s importance but here goes: knowledge sharing / myth busting / empowering, confidence building and invaluable. It pays for itself in the benefits the council gets back from the attendees.
Suffolk Coastal District Council
Always good content and always leave with tips from other LPA’s and speakers.
East Cambridgeshire District Council
Very much enjoyed the subjects on the agenda, found the round table discussion very helpful.
Chiltern & South Bucks District Councils
All speakers were knowledgeable, this has helped me to understand some of the areas that weren’t clear and be able to take away new ideas.
