Developers attracted to Swindon property seminar

A seminar held in Swindon by our firm and two other leading firms of property professionals attracted 60 developers keen to find out how to make the most of the current planning legislation and take advantage of a temporary relaxation of regulations.

Our Commercial Property and Development team, planning and architectural specialists DPDS Consulting and chartered accountants Morris Owen hosted the seminar at The National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon.

The seminar explored the implications of the relaxation of planning laws and reduction in red tape on developers looking to build on land outside of recognised settlement boundaries or non-allocated sites. It also highlighted key planning, financial and legal issues relating to change use – for example converting offices into housing or redundant agricultural buildings for alternative business purposes.

Demand for the seminar was high and a second one is being planned for later in the year.
