Telford-based apT said its first event will focus on the latest building regulation news, and will explain the Local Development Order (LDO) in place across Telford borough which extends permitted development rights for some householders, simplifying and reducing the time to process an application for development works that would have previously required planning permission.

apT – the Midlands’ first public sector commercial planning, development and environmental consultancy – said it is launching the breakfast events to build better relationships across the construction industry, promoting early engagement to bring forward high quality developments.

Valerie Hulme, apT service delivery manager, said: “We have a tremendous amount of expertise in our team and we want to help the construction industry make the most of it.

“This series of events will provide wide-ranging help and advice on topics and legislation of crucial importance to the industry in an informal setting to help build safer places in which to live and work.”

The November 8 event will run from 8am to 10am at Shropshire Chamber of Commerce’s offices in Stafford Park, Telford. People should visit
