Neighbourhood Plans Training for Officers
We run an introductory course to neighbourhood planning for local authority staff, designed to assist those officers that have a support role for Neighbourhood Plan community groups. The training is intended to provide an insight into Neighbourhood Plans from the perspective of an examiner, so the officers can fully appreciate the processes involved.
We can tailor the course content to cover aspects of examinations most pertinent to your local authority, alongside coverage of the more common issues that arise during examination. The training also provides a strategic overview of what is happening across the country in terms of the need for a robust evidence base, the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process in relation to any proposed site allocations, as well as dealing with the subject of housing allocations within Neighbourhood Plans.
Full details of the course are available on request.
