Planning - The Big Jigsaw

10 November 2010

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Sarum College, Salisbury


This interactive seminar will be divided in three parts to give a comprehensive overview of the planning system.

• An outline of the Planning System - an attempt to fit the pieces together to complete the jigsaw

• Planning update to include the latest changes and be kept up to date with the Government guidance including:

- Community infrastructure levy

- Amendments to planning permissions

- Applications to extend planning permissions

- Lawful commencement of development

- Revised GPDO - two years on

- Proposed revisions to GDPO

• A local view point from a Local Authority Planning Officer followed by discussion forum and questions and answers.

As national planning guidance is constantly evolving the seminar will be tailored to reflect any new initiatives not mentioned in the above. There will be ample time to question the speaker on specific planning issues.
