Planning Policy and Local Plans for Local Councils Suitable Audience The course would be of benefit to all councillors who wish to deepen their knowledge of how planning policy is made, and in particular where a parish/town council is in an area for which a new local plan is being prepared. Also suitable for officers who need to advise on the role of their council in participating and consulting on planning policy issues. This training may be held at a venue or online. If online, attendees will need a device with a reasonable screen size such as a PC, laptop, or tablet to be able to participate fully. Session Overview The 2.5-hour Planning Framework session is designed to give attendees a deeper understanding of the structure and purpose of the planning system and its context within the national agenda, looking briefly at the way it has evolved over time and how it is shaped to meet changing priorities. It looks at how local plans are prepared, the topics which they must cover and the legal steps which they must go through, as well as issues around consultation, meeting local priorities and using the plan once it is adopted. A section on likely future changes in the planning system is also included. Topics include housing delivery, site allocations, localism, and how the tests the local plan must pass to be adopted.
