This event will consider the challenges in preparing a Local Plan. It will consider the Duty to Cooperate; looking at how to establish and manage the DtC practices and processes, and how to engage Members and managers. It will seek to help you understand basic demographic information and what it might mean for economic growth, housing needs and delivery. And it will look at best practice in community engagement and how to get the most out social media and technology.
