‘The TCPA’s great strength is that it brings together all the different
interests in planning – community groups, developers,
businesses and more. It represents, at a national scale, the kind
of coming together that we want to help happen in local
discussions about planning.’
The Rt Hon. Greg Clark, Minister for Decentralisation
Addressing the TCPA’s Annual Conference, 30 November 2010

The Coalition Government has set out plans to revolutionise the planning process by ‘taking
power away from officials and putting it into the hands of those who know most about their
neighbourhood – local people themselves’. The Government aims to make the opportunity
available for communities to exercise genuine influence over what their home town should look
like in the future. The ‘Big Idea’, as part of the ‘Big Society’, is to create the freedom and the
incentives for those places that want to grow, to do so, and to reap the benefits. The Government
wants communities to have a reason to say yes to development.

Taking place as the Localism Bill is debated and amended in Parliament, this strategically timed
TCPA conference will be an opportunity for the Government to set out its ambition for community
planning and for a number of experts from the public, private and third sectors to showcase
practical pathways to delivery through case studies, tools and techniques.

The ‘Big Debate’ will be an opportunity to discuss the principles of community-based
neighbourhood planning, focusing on the ‘Big Question’ – how do we move towards a new
settlement between people and planning?

Who should attend?
All those interested in getting involved in neighbourhood planning - local authority councillors
and officers, housing associations, house builders, developers, residents groups, parish councils,
community forums and civic societies.

   5 hours towards your Continuing
