Featuring a range of headline presentations from Landmark barristers and a choice of workshops; this conference will be of interest to anyone who is involved in planning for, shaping, building, advising on, litigating about, or providing services and funding for land, buildings, community services and infrastructure.

Bringing together the unique cross sector expertise of Landmark’s barristers, our experts in planning, property, environment, public, and rating and valuation law, will share their thoughts and lead the debate on critical issues facing the current and future use of land in the UK.

What delegates enjoyed most about last year’s inaugural conference...

Ability to speak to the various speakers either immediately after their slots or during the breaks was a nice touch.
