Helping communities engage with planning



Our planning training sessions are for Councillors and Clerks. Training will help your council increase its impact on planning in your area, provide guidance on how to engage positively with planning, and help improve relationships with your planning authority.

Planning is the issue most widely discussed by Community Councils, being discussed at every meeting by 98% of councils surveyed.’ (Developing a Comprehensive Understanding of Community and Town Councils in Wales, Professor Michael Woods, 2013).

Feedback from people attending our planning training events last year reveals demand from Community & Town Councils for more training. We have therefore broadened our offer with NEW content on  ‘Pre-application consultation: maximising your community influence ’.

See our forward plan below.
