Organisers of successful planning seminar look to repeat event

June 16, 2014

A seminar held in Swindon by three of Wiltshire’s leading firms of property professionals proved so successful a second is being planned for later this year.

The event attracted 60 developers keen to find out how to make the most of planning legislation and take advantage of a temporary relaxation of regulations.

Planning and architectural specialists DPDS Consulting, chartered accountants Morris Owen and law firm Withy King, all with large commercial property and development teams in Swindon, hosted the seminar at town’s The National Self Build and Renovation Centre.

The seminar explored the implications of the relaxation of planning laws and reduction in red tape on developers looking to build on land outside of recognised settlement boundaries or non-allocated sites.

It also highlighted key planning, financial and legal issues relating to change use – for example, converting offices into housing or redundant agricultural buildings for alternative business purposes.
