Sat, 20/06/2020


Weekly, Begins Friday 1st May  (repeated Saturday 2nd May) 
Organised by Friends of the Earth

This free online training programme, led by experienced Planner Naomi Luhde-Thompson, aims to explain how you can use the planning system to help protect your local environment and to campaign for green development. It will outline your rights under the planning system, and how you can successfully influence planning decisions to win your campaign.

The programme will consist of 6 weekly modules. Each module will consist of:

  • An online 90 minute Zoom call including presentations, films and an opportunity to ask questions.
  • A follow-on online discussion forum on Slack 
  • For some modules, a dedicated, region specific Zoom online surgery to discuss regional campaigns and local plans.

These will run:

  • Every Friday evening, 6pm – 7:30pm  
  • Repeated every Saturday mornings, 10am - 11:30am 

You need to attend 1 session each week, either Friday evening or Saturday morning. You are able to change your choice during the course.

If they are over-subscribed, they will prioritise individuals and groups that are currently under-represented and disadvantaged in the planning process.
