A Practical Guide to Neighbourhood Planning
Neighbourhood planning has only been around since 2011 but is already a very significant element of the modern planning system. For local authorities there are a number of extra regulatory burdens. For developers there is a new and potentially disruptive element within the already complex planning policy matrix. For communities themselves there is the challenge of creating a document with statutory significance, often from a standpoint of little formal knowledge.
This half day course focuses on the process from all perspectives and is aimed at those who want a comprehensive insight into this recent and constantly changing area of law and policy.
It includes an overview of the relevant legislation and recent case law together with practical insights based on real world case studies from rural communities to the Isle of Dogs.
