Join us for our Planning Primer seminar on Wednesday 21 February 2024 at Cheltenham Racecourse.

2024 will be a dynamic year for the planning sector, and our team of experts will guide you through the key developments and challenges which the year is likely to hold. Michelmores partners Helen Hutton and Mark Howard, along with associate solicitors Harriet Grimes, Sarah Reardon and Grace Bravery will explore a range of crucial topics. Our guest presenter, James Griffin, Director at Zesta Planning, will also share his valuable insights.
