Bath - 21 July 2011
About the seminar
|seminar supported by:|
The Localism Bill foreshadows yet more radical change to the planning system, with proposals to give local authorities and local people much more power to shape their own communities. But how might these ideas work in practice? Will local people use them to embrace or resist growth?
This seminar will look at the vision behind the Localism Bill, its progress through Parliament, its main provisions and how communities in our towns and cities can use the opportunities in the Bill to best advantage.
