Planning Portal, in collaboration with the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), hosted the National Planning Conference 2022 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

The event, which was the first of its kind, was a landmark success for our industries, bringing together speakers and delegates from across the planning and building sectors. Attendees listened to and participated in talks on the most cutting-edge ideas in planning.
