Planning Portal Conference

The Planning Portal are delighted to be hosting our third annual conference virtually on 15-18 November 2021, covering the pertinent issues affecting planning and building, both now and into the future.

The CPD-accredited conference will again be held online this year, ensuring the safety of all attendees during the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and hosting physical events.

Four days of short, sharp take-home presentations from sector-leading speakers and panellists will bring together a wide range of delegates from planning and building, including business leaders and influencers to discuss the most significant topics affecting the industry, these include planning reform and the digitisation of the planning system, biodiversity net gain, carbon zero and community engagement.

There will be opportunities to network with delegates, speakers and sponsors as well as plenty of chances for live interaction via polls and Q&A sessions.

All delegates will join our new Planning Portal Community Hub, an online space for year-round networking, industry insights, news and thought leading content. There is also the opportunity to join market vertical sub-groups for peer-to-peer discussion.

The event will be free for public sector employees. If you are interested in finding out more information or your organisation would like to sponsor the event, please contact for more details.
