Off the back of our hugely successful #LICPD day in Oxford in February, we are now bringing this fantastic day of content to a new audience. Get an in-depth view of the revised NPPF and what the revisions mean for landscape practitioners – and after the event, join us for free at our annual Jellicoe Lecture!

Featuring dozens of top speakers, including

  • Steve Quartermain CBE, Chief Planner for England at MHCLG
  • Grant Butterworth, Head of Planning at Leicester City Council
  • Dr Jenny Thomas, Head of Built Environment at MHCLG
  • Paul Brown QC, Joint Head of Chambers at Landmark Chambers
  • Jane Houghton, Natural England

Learning outcomes

Get to grips with the new NPPF, its challenges and nuances, and how law and policy interact to affect landscape-led planning – as well as the broader government agenda on design and landscape

Understand the opportunities NPPF presents to designers and specifiers: get involved early in the development process, negotiate improved landscape design for urban projects, and deliver the best possible project outcomes

Unlock the true potential of design: accommodate long-term maintenance management, reconcile the competing demands of development and conservation, and help create truly sustainable communities

Leverage green and blue infrastructure to reduce development footprint and create quality landscapes for new places, as well as exploring creative retrofit solutions for complex underground challenges

Participate in and advise local planning groups and help local councils secure significant community benefits through the planning system

Develop new thinking and techniques to conserve and enhance landscape quality through planning and management

Demonstrate the value of design to crucial policy areas including natural play, active travel and social spaces

Build a thorough knowledge of relevant national policy case law

Thank you to our sponsors


  1. Good afternoon,
    I would like to understand if the ‘The NPPF: Landscape-led planning in practice’ conference is being live broadcasted as well as ‘Empowering parks for the 21st Century’ conference was?
    If so, is it free access?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
    Marta Murteira
