Masterclass aim:

Planning enforcement is the foundation on which the rest of the planning system is built. Without it, carefully crafted Local Plans, beautifully designed developments and expertly considered planning decisions are all weakened.
This Masterclass is aimed at those who are new to planning enforcement. The Masterclass will provide you with an overview of what planning enforcement is, why it is important, and the role it plays within the overall planning system.
If you already have some experience in enforcement, we recommend booking our other Masterclass ‘The Enforcement Handbook’, that will go deeper into the role of planning enforcement officers, their tools and processes for the job. Please check the training calendar for upcoming dates.  

Learning objectives:

  • By the end of this introductory Masterclass, you will know how to undertake safe and effective site visits, what tools and methods to use for investigating cases
  • The Masterclass will enable you to understand the process of identifying whether something is a breach of planning control and what action would be the most appropriate to take
  • You develop your understanding about the use of formal Notices and how the prosecution action steps work within the planning enforcement

Masterclass is delivered by an expert trainer in the field.
