Local Plan engagement with communities

Community engagement is key to successful planning. Drawing on local experience in the South East, speakers will offer their views on the success of plan making in effectively involving the public in planning their communities. Most communities are not aware of Local Plans, and residents and communities are usually engaged too late in the process to make a difference. Hence, early engagement would be more meaningful, allowing communities to have a say in how planning policies are shaped.

In this webinar speakers will consider:

  • The benefits of early engagement with the public in Plan making
  • How to effectively engage with the public during the Plan making process especially hard to reach groups and in light of the digitalisation agenda in planning
  • Case studies of successful and meaningful engagement with the public
  • Relevant Case law update

Through a combination of expert speakers and discussion, you will learn:

  • What planners can do to involve the public more effectively in Plan making
  • How communities can shape their communities and be meaningfully engaged with the Plan making process
  • How to avoid alienating people from the Plan making process and what benefits and constraints the new digitalization agenda might present
  • Update on relevant case law
