Tuesday 26 February 2019, Kellogg College, Oxford

Tickets £35-155 from https://htvf-npseminar.eventbrite.co.uk

With neighbourhood planning now well underway in many urban centres and neighbourhoods, towns, villages and rural areas, this seminar is an opportunity to learn about:

  • innovative strategies to overcome local issues
  • techniques to build a credible evidence base for critical points
  • common challenges and ways to respond to them
  • what to look for in appointing an examiner
  • reviewing your 5 year old Neighbourhood Plan
  • how local authorities can be supportive of made and developing Neighbourhood Plans, and
  • writing effective policies for historic environments.

This seminar will be of interest to neighbourhood planning groups, local authority officers and councillors, civic and amenity societies, and consultants with an interest in planning, urban design, community action, and heritage management.
