This FREE event for APSE members in Northern Ireland will consider the interface between planning strategies, economic development and local environmental quality with morning plenary sessions which will explore planning and investment led economic growth, following by consideration of environment sustainability issues for local businesses and communities and ending with a discussion on the importance of a high performing suite of public realm services.
The afternoon session will compromise of two workshop events hosted by APSE Performance Networks.
Workshop 1: Environmental services workshop

The workshops will also consider developments within the sector and within the Performance Networks data collection process.
