About This Conference
Wednesday 6 September 2023 | 17:00 - 19:00
We would be delighted if you could join our host Gary Stephens on Wednesday 6 September 2023 at the Coventry Transport Museum between 5:00pm and 7:00 pm to discuss the future growth and regeneration of Coventry.
Gary will be joined by Rob Back (Strategic Planning Lead) and Clare Eggington (Planning Policy Manager) both from Coventry City Council who present the City Plan and John Godfrey (Interim Director of Housing, Property and Regeneration) at West Midlands Combined Authority who will be speaking about housing, employment and regeneration. We will also hear from Adam Partington (Heritage Partner) and Luke Hillson (Design Partner) at Marrons who will be talking about understanding the evolution of a place, community and its history; and the importance of subsequent responsive design proposals which encompass best practice place-making principles to delivery high quality developments.
Whilst the Government continues to consult on changes to the planning system, plan making by Councils has to continue and Coventry City Council have started a review of its Local Plan.
The last Plan was adopted in 2017 and much has changed since then. The need for land for jobs and homes has not diminished, and climate change and the environment are now higher on the agenda.
Regeneration and redevelopment will be particularly key to the future success of the City, but how will the new Local Plan help make that happen?
We are very pleased to have secured Rob and Clare to explain, discuss the future planning of the City, and to answer your questions.
