Landmark Information is chairing an online event to explore the government’s ‘Planning for the Future’ consultation and the impact reforms may have on the industry

The event will bring together industry leaders to debate the details of the Planning for the Future paper, share their views and raise questions on how the proposed reforms may impact property professionals, ahead of the submission deadline in late October.

The event, which takes place online on Tuesday 6 October at 10am, will be introduced by Simon Brown, CEO of Landmark Information Group, and chaired by Alex Wrottesley, managing director of Landmark Information’s environment & mapping division.

Paul Maltby, chief digital officer of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) will be discussing the government’s perspective of the planning system, while Denise McKenzie, the chair of the AGI will be discussing a view from Data Users’ perspective.

A panel conversation will be chaired by Tony Mulhall, associate director of RICS, which will include guest speakers from BRE and One Search Direct.

Questions will also be invited from the audience, who are invited to attend the open event.

‘Get involved’

Commenting on the event, Alex Wrottesley said: “We look forward to welcoming our speakers and guests to our event that explores the ins and outs of the Planning for the Future consultation.
