Social value in planning: Development as a force for good
7 October 2021

Many developers are progressing impressive ESG initiatives that support the communities in which they are working, however it is challenging to know how best to demonstrate these through a social value appraisal. This cross-sector industry discussion explores lessons learned so far and how developers and planners can best approach social value to demonstrate development as a force for good.
