Breakout Session - Biodiversity Net Gain: What do the new requirements entail?
What does 'Biodiversity Net Gain' mean for local authorities and for housebuilders? With the Environment Act introducing a number of statutory obligations on both, and with the promise of more secondary legislation to follow, there is an urgent need for both public sector bodies and for property developers to engage with the detail of this bold new policy. 

If implemented properly, 'Biodiversity Net Gain' has the potential to boost biodiversity and restore the natural environment. However, both Government and third sector bodies have warned that there will be challenges with introducing the policy, especially when it comes to dealing with the large number of 'small site' planning applicants who may struggle to comply with the new rules.

In this session, the former Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Robert Jenrick, will provide a recorded introduction setting out the intention behind this policy. There will then be a panel conversation exploring what the 'Net Gain' policy involves; how technical solutions can be deployed to help both small developers and Local Planning Authorities comply with its requirements; and what steps stakeholders should take to make sure that 'small sites' planning applications abide by the new legislation. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

Breakout Session - What should planning policy do to make net zero happen?
How can planning policy help address climate change and get us to net zero carbon? This session is about hearing about different approaches to planning policy that targets carbon next zero, and then working together as a group to discuss what planning policy in England needs to do differently to ensure this is delivered.  Bring your ideas and challenges to the discussion!

Opening Keynote
From improving services to driving better decision making, resident involvement is changing the way one of the UK’s largest housing associations operates.
To truly tackle the housing crisis, developers can’t afford to take a paternalistic approach to housebuilding - communities are key partners in creating successful places which will stand the test of time, argues Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Group Chief Executive of L&Q.
