G4C Young Professionals Breakfast – Introduction to Town Planning in the UK

Luke Coffey and Will Whiting of Mott MacDonald will be giving an insight into their role as town planners. Town planning is a profession that decides how land should be used or protected and is a fundamental part of any construction project from start to finish. It ensures that local regulations are met, stakeholders are managed and satisfied and that our towns and cities are developed to be more attractive, safe and sustainable. They work with a huge range of professionals both within and beyond construction including politicians, businesses and other community organisations to facilitate a process whereby all interests are managed and considered.

The purpose of these breakfast club events are to connect young professionals within the construction sector to come together find camaraderie, share ideas and to use the network as a platform for getting their voices heard in industry.

The events are a great combination of thought leadership from the guest speakers, collaboration from networking and FREE breakfast & coffee!
