RTPI Cymru Spring Conference 2019

Engaging and Listening for Placemaking

Wednesday, 20 March 2019 at 10:00AM - 3:30PM
Quay Hotel, Deganwy, Conwy LL31 9DJ

Planning Policy Wales (PPW) Edition 10 has been written with the principles of sustainable development at its heart. It emphasises a need for planning to integrate the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act’s five ways of working which include involvement and collaboration. Engagement and listening skills are key to the work of planners in all sector in facilitating these ways of working. This year’s Spring Conference will discuss the latest approaches to these skills, providing practical advice and tools to take back to the office.

The Conference programme includes:

  • Pre-application Guidance - Andrea Kellegher, Turley
  • Tools for Engagement - Jo Hatton Jones, Grasshopper
  • Community Mapping tool to engage with communities - Hannah Dineen, Vale of Glamorgan Council
  • How to engage with the hard to reach and who are they? - Deborah Jeffrey, Planning Engagement Officer, Planning Aid Wales
  • Engaging with Faith Communities - Richard Gale, Cardiff University
  • Social media tools - Will Savage, Snapdragon

There will also be a practical workshop on tools to promote involvement facilitated by the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales.
