Review: Virtual Politics of Planning Roundtable with Cllr David Tutt

SP Broadway was delighted to welcome Cllr David Tutt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, as the guest speaker of our latest online Politics of Planning roundtable.

Attendees from Willmott Dixon, Mactaggart & Mickel, v10 Homes and other industry names contributed to the discussion on planning in Eastbourne. Topics of discussion included the Government Planning White Paper, climate change policies, and the challenges of planning in Eastbourne. The issues of town centre regeneration, improvements to infrastructure and the importance of community engagement were also focal points of discussion.

Cllr Tutt gave an insightful overview of planning in Eastbourne, highlighting the physical and environmental constraints of the area and how this affects planning. Cllr Tutt also offered some thoughts on the importance of community engagement to work collaboratively with residents and environmental groups to achieve his vision for Eastbourne.

We would like to place on record our thanks to Cllr David Tutt and guests for attending and contributing to such an interesting discussion. Our next online event will be with Cllr Chris White, Leader of St Albans City & District Council on Thursday 10th June.
