Planning for Infrastructure in Wales is a focused event providing you with practical guidance on how to successfully gain planning consent for your project. Through the latest case studies and expert advice explore how to overcome some of the biggest challenges facing the development of new infrastructure in Wales, including how to secure funding, how to engage with landowners and key stakeholders, and how to ensure development takes place in Wales and not in other areas of the UK.

  • Receive the latest updates on recent policy development and the impact on future schemes - including a focus on the development of the National Development Framework
  • Hear how projects are progressing through the new regime for Developments of National Significance and what lessons can be learnt and applied to future projects
  • Hear on some of the key challenges facing the planning process and take away practical lessons to apply to your application
  • Explore what the further devolution of power means for new projects in Wales, and the impact on schemes where not all powers are devolved and additional consents and licenses are required
