Upcoming Events

We have always been very proud of our events. They brought people together and allowed them time and space to think through new problems. For obvious reasons we are moving things online - using MS Teams for smaller workshops and Zoom for larger events. We are trying to keep things interactive so bring your questions and your creativity.  

Booking tickets via eventbrite

A few people are getting frustrated when booking tickets for events very late (sometimes even after they have started). For reasons we needn't go into just now, we are not using the automatic integration of Eventbrite and Zoom. This means that shortly before the event a human (who we call Steve) will send you your link. Shortly before the event starts Steve will be mucking in with the event and will not see any late orders. So - book tickets at least a day in advance if you want to be sure. 

PAS Chief Planners Conference - an in person event

  • 10am on Thursday 27th to 2pm on Friday 28th January 2022

  • Novotel Wolverhampton, Union Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 3JN

After missing last year, we're pleased to say that the annual PAS Chief Planners' Conference is back in what feels like an important period of change for the sector - and it will be an in person event.

It will be held in Wolverhampton on the 27th and 28th January. We would like Chief Planners to attend and we would ask that they also bring a rising star along as we would like to speak to the next generation of Chief Planners. We will be covering content around the reform agenda and present challenges of local planning authority services from across the PAS programme.

As previously with these events, we will cover the food for both days and accommodation for the Thursday evening but the deal is that you stay for all of the sessions and provide feedback through our evaluation forms. We will be finishing at 2pm on the Friday afternoon. Can you please book separate places for both yourself and your nominated rising star? We will then post the agenda and confirm arrangements.

Please note that whilst the event is free to attend, if you are no longer able to attend, please let us know at your earliest convenience so that we can offer your space out.

If you do not attend and do not inform us, we will charge for the cost of the place.

Book your place.
