Rural Update: Neighbourhood Planning: The Rural Context: are rural areas leading the way?
Against the current background of uncertainty over planning influence, this year's Rural Update event will focus on neighbourhood planning and its contribution to planning in rural areas.
If rural areas are leading the way, as parish level plans become more influential, how might this assist political promises to integrate neighbourhood planning into the planning system and indeed ensure that it becomes the bedrock of the future planning system?
A wide-ranging team of speakers will address the emerging issues and delegate participation will include a good practice workshop from North West Planning Aid.
