This webinar forms part of our RTPI Online series and is brought to you by Planning Aid South West Task Group

Join us on the 16 March for a discussion with local professionals from the South West on engagement in planning and the impact of the recent Planning White Paper. As well as discussing the implications of the White Paper on future projects and community engagement, we will also consider the opportunities and challenges it may bring.

The webinar will illustrate its discussion by looking at examples of community projects in the region and providing perspectives from planning policy, a developer and the community. 

PAE will be seeking questions from volunteers in advance, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions on the day. 

As this is organised by volunteers on the South West task group for Planning Aid England (PAE), the Chair will give a short update.
