Development Management

The Development Management Network advises and represents the Society on all issues concerning the regulation and management of development

The Development Management Network advises and represents the Society on all issues concerning the regulation and management of development

The DMN has three priorities:

  • to work with other organisations, such as the LGA, RTPI, DCLG, PINS, etc in order to make the development management system as efficient and effective in terms of outcomes;
  • working with thee Policy Manager, to respond on behalf of the Society to consultation material from the DCLG, LGA, Environment Agency, etc and, where appropriate, provide a joint response on behalf of the Society and external organisations such as the LGA;
  • to provide the opportunity for Society members to exchange information and ideas, to facilitate the spread of best practice, and deal with queries and concerns raised by members on matters relating to their professional responsibilities.

The DMN meets quarterly and as a matter of principle the meetings are held at a variety of locations throughout the country. It is not always convenient for all members to attend every meeting, but might be able to attend a meeting close to their place of work or home. Heads of Development Management in neighbouring authorities are invited to attend irrespective of whether or not they are members of the Society. This provides the opportunity to showcase the work of the Society and the network in particular as an encouragement to join the Society. The host authority is also given the opportunity to promote their practical work through either presentations and/or site visits, on matters or issues of relevance to members.
