The Basics of Planning
Inter-Authority Training

This practical workshop is designed as an introduction to the planning process for enforcement, administrative and technical staff in Planning Authorities and support staff working in private practice.  As well as providing an introduction to anyone who is new to planning, it is also relevant for more experienced staff who want to set their job in the wider context of the planning process. The workshop deals with the key elements of development management, enforcement and development planning, incorporating group exercises and case studies where appropriate.  It also provides participants with a valuable opportunity to meet and share experiences with colleagues from other authorities and other parts of the planning process.
