The Community Hub from the Planning Portal – your free online community for industry-specific networking and news

by on July 28, 2021

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Planning Portal Community Hub, our new digital platform for facilitating online networking, events, and discussions all year round for the planning and building industry.

Using the latest technology, The Community Hub provides all users with the latest industry-specific news from architects, planning consultants, developers, governing bodies and industry membership organisations, along with targeted networking opportunities tailored to your interests and areas of speciality.

Using integrated algorithms, the system works to pair you up with other delegates, speakers, sessions, products and exhibitors that will be of interest to you, allowing you to ‘meet’, schedule meetings and start new conversations! 

More than just a news site

Alongside the dedicated news streams, we will be hosting all future virtual events, conferences, webinars and round table discussions on the platform. It also hosts a wealth of previously broadcast content, including the entire series of our ‘Planning Portal: Past, Present and Future’ webinars and recordings from last year’s virtual conference.

The Community Hub is free for all to join, you just need to register your details and you will have full access to the site content, including networking, on demand content and the latest news. You can register for your account here.

If you have registered for the Planning Portal Annual Conference, your preferences will already be saved in the Community Hub, simply click register, enter your email address and it will populate all your Annual Conference registration details. Then just proceed to activate, and your login and password will be the same. If you are yet to register for this year’s conference you can do so here.

Listing your business and joining the Marketplace on The Community Hub will bring with it many benefits. Your organisation will be prominent at all events, including the Planning Portal Annual Conference, webinars and round table discussions hosted on The Community Hub. Your organisation will be able to post unlimited news and content, all of which will all be SEO-enabled and will benefit from the Planning Portal’s domain authority.

In addition, you will be notified of all interactions with your business profile and engage with the registered users of the hub via messaging or even a scheduled video call.

We have three packages available, including an introductory launch offer, alongside sponsorship opportunities for one day events, webinars and round table discussions. If you would like more information, please contact

Do you work for the Public Sector or a Government Body?
Anyone working in the Public Sector or for a Government Body will be able to access the conference for free. To do so, follow the registration process on the website and select Public Sector/Government Body as your ticket type. Anyone registering for this type of pass, must do so with a email address.
