Planning firm and lawyers host property forum for developers

Developers will be able to find out about the impact of the recent planning law changes and the opportunities that have arisen in respect of agricultural land, at a seminar being held by two of Wiltshire’s leading firms of property professionals.

Planning and architectural specialists DPDS Consulting Group and law firm Withy King, which has large commercial property and development team, will be hosting the Marlborough Property Forum at Marlborough Golf Club on Wednesday, September 10 from 12.30pm until 2pm.

The relaxation of planning laws and reduction in red tape has opened doors for developers looking to build on land outside of recognised settlement boundaries or non-allocated sites.

It has also created opportunities for those interested in changing the use of buildings – for example converting offices into housing or redundant agricultural buildings for alternative business purposes.

However, there are still processes and procedures which need to be followed, caveats to be aware of and obstacles which may need to be overcome, which the seminar will highlight.

Attendance costs £15, which includes a buffet lunch. For more information, or to book a place, email Susan Cupples at DPDS at or call 01793 610222
