FULL – NEGOTIATE A BETTER OUTCOME IN PLANNING -FULL
Please note this event is now full.
Dealing with the planning system is one of the most challenging activities for a parish or town council. It can also be one of the most important with the biggest impact on your local area.
Somerset ALC have previously provided training on Neighbourhood Planning and have worked with district councils to deliver training on the planning system. These sessions give a good grounding in how the system works and how you can play a role in it.
This new training builds on those lessons and offers practical skills in negotiating with developers and planning officers to secure planning gain on the back of major developments.
This training will help you:
- Learn practical skills to give you the confidence to speak to developers and ask for contributions towards local infrastructure needs
- Help you spot opportunities that arise from new development proposals
- Help you speak to and on behalf of your community so that you can gain the maximum benefit whether you are for or against and development
The training will be delivered by Andrea Pellegram MRTPI who has over 30 years’ experience in planning gained in the private and public sectors.
Frome Town Council will be the focus of a local case study and will present a real-life example of current negotiations. An exercise based on success in Fairford Town Council will provide another real example of negotiation technique.
Lunch will be provided, as will refreshments throughout the day, and there is ample on-site parking.
