York Property Lunch – 18 January – at Hotel du Vin.
Property, planning and the city’s heritage continue to be of great interest to businesses both inside and outside the city walls.
With many people keen to see the confirmation of a Local Plan (the allocation of sites for development, and for what type of use), pressure to build more homes and increasing skills shortages in several sectors, there are plenty of talking points for this event.
A speaker will be confirmed shortly for this event.

The delivery of a Core Strategy (the plan for where developments sites for housing and commercial buildings are allocated) is now uppermost in the minds of many in the property sector.
The delivery is likely to be delayed due to its approval being paused by the government minister responsible.
Details on speaker/topic will follow shortly, but the above delay is sure to get a mention.
