CPD Points Available: 15 

The publication last year of the long anticipated National Planning Framework, the adoption of new guidelines on Urban Height and Density, introduction of new concepts around co-living have brought new challenges to Planners in Ireland across the Planning System. Against this background the IPI invite you to come and join fellow Irish Planners in London to update your knowledge and learn about the latest thinking on Place Marking, Height, Density, Co Living and Land Management. Many of our Irish colleagues are part of the London Irish Town Planners Network, which is now almost 7 years old. Members of the LITPN work across a range of areas in London and will be contributing to the event. 

Key topics to be explored over the two day visit include:

  • Quality Placemaking
  • Urban Height
  • Co Living
  • Land Management
  • Brownfield Development
  • Urban Regeneration

We have agreed a provisional programme of visits and talks but this still has to be finalised. It is likely that the majority of the trip will be around the newly developing areas of London around the Stratford/Olympic park areas.

This CPD Trip offers participants:

  •   Invaluable Networking with a cross session of IPI Members and Planners working in the UK through the LITPN
  •   Key learning field visits led by local expert Planners involved with such developments
  •   Joint IPI – LITP evening reception
  •   Half Day Urban Planning Seminar on Height and Density
