Swindon seminar will give developers insight into changes in planning regulations

March 28, 2014

Developers will be able to find out how to make the most of the planning regime and take advantage of the temporary relaxation of regulations at a seminar to be staged by three of Wiltshire’s leading firms of property professionals.

Recent changes have opened doors for developers looking to build on land outside of recognised settlement boundaries or non-allocated sites. They have also created opportunities for those interested in changing the use of buildings – for example, converting offices into housing or redundant agricultural buildings for alternative business purposes.

However, there are still processes and procedures which need to be followed, caveats to be aware of and obstacles which may need to be overcome, which the seminar will highlight.

Developers will need to act quickly though as these are temporary measures by the Government designed to bolster the economy, and the rules are likely to be tightened up in the near future.

The seminar is being hosted by planning and architectural specialists DPDS Consulting Group, chartered accountants Morris Owen and law firm Withy King – all of which have large commercial property and development teams in Swindon – at The National Self Build and Renovation Centre at Lydiard Fields on May 14. The event runs from 4pm to 6pm.

The cost of this event is £15.00 (incl VAT). If you would like more information or to register please contact Amanda Loftus at DPDS Consulting Group on 01793 610222 or by email at aloftus@dpds.co.uk
