"On the 17 August Dorset Young Planners had a great night for their annual summer social in Poole, which by some miracle actually included some sunshine. Young Planners got to sample some Turkish delicacies at the local restaurant before then embarking on the boat for a tour of the Harbour ending with a magnificent firework show. 

Massive thanks to everyone that came along and to Carrington West for their kind sponsorship which enabled the event to happen"

Amelia Rose, Chair of Dorset Young Planners

"On 29th June
Dorset Young Planners hosted a tour of Canford SANG in Bournemouth followed by further CPD and networking at the Hamworthy Club. Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace [“SANG”] is a greenspace that is of a quality and type suitable to be used as an area of mitigation to offset the impact of new residential development, similar to a country park but with a specific purpose to reduce recreational pressures on sensitive habitats.

RTPI Members and Young Planners went on a guided tour of Canford Park SANG with expert speakers who will give their professional perspectives on the purpose of SANGs, securing SANGs through the planning process and their management and why SANGs have strategic importance (amongst others).

A massive thanks again to Brett Spiller of Chapman Lily Planning, Jade North from Dorset Council UK and Sam Mckirdy, SANG Manager, for sharing your wealth of knowledge on all things SANGs/heathlands/mitigation

Thank you also to Chapman Lily Planning Ltd for your kind sponsorship and to Lucy Morgan and Phillippa Gatehouse for organising an amazing event."

Amelia Rose, Chair of Dorset Young Planners
