About The Event

Suffolk Development Briefing - a unique new showcase and networking event for Suffolk.

Bookings on this site have reached maximum capacity, however, there may still be places available on Eventbrite.

Eventbrite bookings will close at 2pm on 30th November 2018 (or when seated capacity has been reached).

This half-day event will be a showcase for major developments throughout Suffolk, and it is also a great networking opportunity. You will hear from developers and designers working on major projects while speakers from local authorities and other public bodies will fill in the strategic background. Some major developers have already committed to presenting their schemes. There will be plenty of time for discussion and networking with the key people who are shaping Suffolk.

If you cannot attend and would either like to nominate a colleague and/or would like to be invited to another Suffolk Design event, please email: Jen Bundock, Project Manager:

Suffolk Design is a major initiative by all the local authorities in Suffolk, supported by funding from the Ministry of Housing, Local Government and Communities, to improve design quality in the built environment. Over the next year we will be working to produce design guidance for Suffolk that is committed to delivering good growth; growth that is integrated into the County’s settlements and landscapes and that responds to context. Alongside this will be a programme of learning and networking events.
