Unlocking Opportunities – The Risk of Planning Refusal; Sponsored by CLS Risk Solutions

Tuesday, 30th June 2020 1400hrs – 1500hrs

Over the coming months we’ll be hosting a series of webinars – helping to keep the industry moving and talking during a period of uncertainty, enabling people to talk and build relationships whilst helping to maintain industry confidence and demonstrating thought leadership.

This webinar will look into the challenges developers face when looking to unlock land for development – and how that can be overcome through great planning, innovative solutions and collaboration.

Bringing forward new developments is a difficult task – whether it we the difficulty of getting the right funding, the complex nature of the system, achieving value for schemes to be viable…and many more. In this webinar we’re joined by several experts who’re steeped in experience of bringing forward large-scale developments across the UK. They’ll share their knowledge, tips and experience which could prove incredibly valuable for those listening delegates.

This webinar will run as a thought-leadership discussion and debate – with opportunities for delegates to ask their questions.

Speakers for this event include:

Hugo Kirby,
Managing Director
Rachael Ainscough,
Group Managing Director
Phil Jarvis,
Underwriting Manager
David Morris,
Planning & Operations Director
