Hundreds of participants attend "The Urban Simplex" conference

On 3 April, TELLES held a conference on "The Urban Simplex", which was attended by around 200 people.

The first practical impressions of the so-called Simplex Urbanístico were presented, the state of play was reviewed and the prospects for simplifying licences in the fields of urban planning, land use planning and industry were discussed.

The event also addressed issues such as the digitalisation of licensing procedures, the reduction of bureaucracy and the positive impact these measures can have on the development of the real estate sector and the attraction of foreign investment.

Fernanda Paula Oliveira, Professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra, Pedro Baganha, Councillor for Urban Planning at the Municipality of Porto, Ricardo Guimarães, economist and director of Confidencial Imobiliário, and Frederico Styliano Reis, lawyer at TELLES specialising in urban planning, were the speakers at this session.
Miguel Nogueira Leite, partner and head of the Real Estate, Construction and Urban Planning practice at TELLES, moderated the round table.
Pedro Almeida e Sousa, partner and head of the Real Estate, Construction and Urban Planning practice at TELLES, chaired the opening session.

At the end of the conference, held at the Dr António Cupertino de Miranda Foundation in Porto, participants were very satisfied with the exchange of knowledge and experience, highlighting the importance of this type of initiative for improving urban planning in Portugal.

TELLES thus continues to promote events that contribute to the discussion and reflection of pressing issues in the field of urban planning law, strengthening its role as a reference in this field.
