As part of our commitment to represent all groups involved or affected by construction & development in our region we work with the School of Built Environment supporting the activities of Leeds Planning Network.

Leeds Planning Network was established in November 2015 to support neighbourhood planning practices, groups and communities. Through topic focussed events, it provides a platform to discuss, debate and practical advise on local housing and planning issues as well as sharing policy and legal updates. It was set up with the aim of ultimately creating a good practice model for planning engagement and development in Leeds which can then be used a case study for adoption throughout the region and beyond.

Leeds Planning Network is a Leeds Beckett University run initiative, chaired by Dr Quintin Bradley, Senior Lecturer in Planning and Housing with fellow school of built environment colleagues and supported by Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber.

For more information, please contact Quintin Bradley on 0113 812 1964 or via email to
