The President's latest blog:
"I facilitated the POS Forum which took placwe in Birmingham on Friday 17th July in the amazing premises of Birmingham City University right opposite the forthcoming High Speed 2 station and regeneration site in Curzon Street.
The University gave a great overview of the campus and the learning opportunities for planners given the pressure of the jobs market and public sector organisations seeking to employ more of us as the economy and property industry improves. The theme of the Forum was "planning for devolution" and we received an exciting and highly informative presentation from the Centre for Cities, Ed Clarke. The Government's Productivity Plan: Fixing the Foundations, was the key item for debate and how POS and local planning authorities respond to the most radical agenda for planning reforms for a generation. POS Novus gave a interesting take on radical approaches and solutions to planning and values."
