This recently developed workshop is aimed at any enforcement, planning and legal officers who are involved in drafting, defending and securing compliance with enforcement notices. It would be ideal for anyone who has attended TRA's other enforcement workshops or seeks a refresher to their enforcement studies. It is a practical session looking in detail at the elements of drafting an enforcement notice and trying to "proof" it against potential grounds of appeal and invalidity. Consideration will be given to defending the notice on appeal including: the types of appeal; what is required in statements/proofs; preparation for/appearance at Hearings and Inquiries; and the site inspection. Securing compliance (and potentially some recompense) with an extant notice is essential to maintain the integrity of the planning process so the pros and cons of the range of available options will be considered including the use of POCA.
If you are interested in in-house training please contact Angela Holmes. She will be pleased to discuss your requirements and provide outline programmes for you to consider. We are also happy to consider designing bespoke/tailored workshops for individual clients, although in some cases this may involve an additional cost. When you are ready to take things further we can provide a written proposal and check presenter availability.
Please note that all enquiries are without obligation.
