The focus of this Workshop is only on the "front end" processes (generically called validation) and relates solely to validating planning applications. This means that quite a bit of time can be spent on key issues such as checking fees and operating the LPA's local list.
Please note that if the host LPA chooses to invite staff from neighbouring authorities to join in on training, the "visiting" staff will need to be made aware that the focus will be on the host LPA ways of validating.
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.
It gave an overall insight of why/what is required to validate applications. The presenter was extremely thorough and explained things very well. She has given me the confidence to start validating. All of the slides shown were very informative.
Very good, very clear, easy to understand and digest.
The presenter effectively tailored the course to our specific requirements to help train Business Support Staff on Validation to help assist our function of moving this function from case officers.
Very thorough presentation and a helpful background to planning.
