We have also continued to host our Politics of Planning breakfast discussions, with a wide-ranging list of guest speakers engaging in lively debate and sharing their visions for the future of planning and development. This year our guests have included:

  • Cllr Stephen Alambritis, Leader of Merton Council
  • Cllr Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest Council
  • James Murray, Deputy Mayor of London for Housing and Residential Development
  • Clive Betts MP, Chair of the Communities and Local Government Select Committee
  • Robert Courts MP, Member of Parliament for Witney

We look forward to more excellent discussions in 2018, with events already organised with the Leaders of Crawley Borough Council, Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, and Camden Council.

Looking towards the new year, the political landscape of the planning and development sector looks set to remain challenging, with continued political instability in Westminster and housing increasingly dominating the political agenda. SP Broadway is looking forward to continuing to provide first-class advice to our clients to overcome these challenges in 2018.

From all at SP Broadway, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
