Course Aim

Community engagement is at the heart of planning  and the more effective it is, the better the outcome for everyone. In this online masterclass, you will explore lessons learnt from experience to date and how to engage with groups effectively to achieve good planning outcomes.

This masterclass is delivered in association with Planning Aid England (PAE). Launched in 1973, PAE provides planning advice and support to help individuals and communities engage with the planning system and get involved in planning their local area. For more information about PAE services visit this page

Through a combination of expert trainer input, discussion and group work, you will:

  • Understand  the importance of community engagement has part of the planning process;
  • Discover a range of tools and techniques for effective working with communities;
  • Evaluate a variety of approaches to community engagement to select the most appropriate one for your projects.


This masterclass will be delivered through an interactive three hour webinar. There will also be a dedicated learning area for this masterclass inside RTPI Learn. It will be open for three months for structured, reflective activities with your trainer and other delegates before, during and after the live webinar.
