The 2021 Northern Ireland Planning Conference, was delivered online in February. The conference is now firmly established as the major annual event for all those with an interest or role in planning and development in Northern Ireland. This year’s conference came at a time of great disruption and change. We were delighted to have a range of expert speakers, local and visiting, join us to examine the challenges and opportunities for planning in Northern Ireland. We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our delegates, speakers and conference sponsor, Carson McDowell for their participation.
