Viability: what planners need to know
Inter-Authority Training

Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject this new workshop will cover everything from national advice and guidance to applying viability in practice.  It considers viability for LDP policy development and testing, and in the context of Development Management decision making.   Drawing on examples of good practice, appeal decisions and case law it seeks to de-mystify the viability 'black box' enabling participants to understand and evaluate the various components that make up viability, and the different models and ways of assessing it. Through presentations, discussions and a wide variety of practical exercises, the workshop also gives participants the opportunity to begin applying their knowledge in practice by considering viability issues and challenges they are currently facing and ways in which these may be resolved.
