Public Inquiries (whether planning appeals or other inquiries) can put increased pressure and stress on the staff involved, many of whom may have little experience of the inquiry process. At some stage in their careers, most town planners will be required to give evidence at some type of formal hearing when they will be subject to cross examination by barristers.
This masterclass will provide you with the tools and techniques to prepare properly for such a situation.
Through a combination of expert trainer input, discussion and group work, you will:
- Understand the role and duties of expert witnesses
- Learn how to present your evidence to the best of your ability at the inquiry and deal confidently with cross-examination.
- Gain valuable knowledge to feel confident to prepare and appear at a public inquiry
Delegate numbers are restricted to enhance learning outcomes
