This webinar is brought to you by the RTPI West Midlands as part of the RTPI Online event series.

Taking a look at how local authorities in the West Midlands have been adapting and getting up to speed in using new digital methods, tools and techniques for engagement and consultation, during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A chance to review and share lessons learnt, challenges experienced and future opportunities for establishing new ways of working, in the planning space.

Raising the importance of planning to promote innovative communication and engagement methods is now more important than ever, not only because of the current pandemic, but because the need already existed for creating better platforms for inclusive engagement and consultation.
