Roundtable: Business as usual?

For our first ‘online’ roundtable event of 2020-21 there can only be one subject: Design, Planning and Development during the lockdown and beyond. We will explore:

  • how are planning departments coping during the lockdown?
  • a lot of construction has paused, but does that mean the whole development industry is closed?
  • are design practices and their clients still developing planning proposals?
  • does the lockdown provide any opportunities for the public or private sectors?
  • what will be the Government’s priorities as the economy starts to recover?
  • how can the industry adapt to a likely post-Covid19 world?

The roundtable will be chaired by Design South East Director, Chris Lamb, and will use the Chatham House rule.

Time: 09:15 – 11:00
Date: Thursday 30th April 2020
Venue: Zoom roundtable – online only!
