Helping communities engage with planning


Bespoke training for town councillors

Planning Aid Wales volunteers delivered a successful bespoke training session on planning policy for Dinas Powys Town Council, South Wales, in March this year. The council contacted us for help on responding to the Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan in February, shortly before the council released a draft of the plan. Our volunteers used their expertise in planning policy to deliver a bespoke training session giving an overview of the planning policy process. They also gave advice on making a well-balanced response to the consultation.

We encourage individuals and organisations to engage with planning policy and, in the case of Local Development Plans, to get involved as early as possible. You are more likely to influence planning issues that affect you in your locality if you get involved and have a say during the early stages in the preparation of the Local Development Plan. We offer a wide range of training on planning policy, local development plans and specific planning issues. These are delivered by our expert team of staff and volunteers, so don’t hesitate to get in touch using the details below, the sooner the better.
