A Beginner's Guide to Processing Planning Applications
Inter-Authority Training

This workshop is aimed at all those who are new (or relatively new) to processing planning applications.  It provides a comprehensive introduction for newly qualified planning officers with little hands-on experience, support staff who are now taking on responsibility for handling applications, and enforcement staff who deal with retrospective applications. The workshop will take participants through the fundamentals of development management: the decision making process, the role of planning policy, material considerations, the use of conditions and the appeals system. Providing practical guidance and useful tips, its aim is to increase participants’ confidence in their new role and provide important pointers for further learning and development.
