This WM RTPI CPD is suitable for all of those working or with an interest in the built environment sector, particularly planners, landscape architects, surveyors, architects and other consultants and local authority workers. It will cover the basics of how to better engage with communities during the planning process and successful case studies.

Participants will be working practically towards developing community-centred briefs for those involved in projects that interact with the public, whether through engagement exercises or getting people to design and build their own homes. We will be focusing on the concept of ‘community as expert’.

Participants will explore a range of engagement approaches from inspiring examples covering co-design workshops, digital platforms, community-led housing design, and immersive methods to expand their repertoire on how to engage in a meaningful, transparent, responsive and extensive manner.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of how to effectively engage communities in the planning process
  • Learn how to develop community-centred briefs for planning projects
  • Learn a variety of techniques for engaging communities in the planning process

Core CPD Framework:

  • Championing Planning
