Neighbourhood Plans: preparation and examination
In-House Training

This workshop focuses on the detailed aspects of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan and specifically what is required in taking a Plan through the Examination process and on to a Referendum. The workshop explores how best to project manage the process and how to make the most of the available sources of help, including using consultants. It also looks to demystify some of the more complex aspects around testing the plan and offers a straightforward step-by-step exploration of what will happen, when it will happen and who will do it. It will help delegates to focus on what they will need to do in their own areas and the tasks and issues they will need to tackle in order to produce a successful Neighbourhood Plan.

The workshop can be delivered for individual Town/Parish Councils or community groups. They can also be commissioned by local planning authorities for the benefit of a group (or groups) within their area.

Please note that sessions on Neighbourhood Planning can also be tailored to local circumstances/schedules to ensure that training meets with your particular needs - please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss taking this approach.

Training is delivered by one member of our experienced presenting team. Timings are flexible: in a morning, afternoon or evening to suit the client.
