Planning Training in November
We have now carried out Planning Training for County Gardens Trusts across all the English regions, with a really positive attendance.
The results have been fantastic; the Garden History Society Conservation Log records that over 50% of CGTs are now regularly making comments on planning applications!
This is brilliant, but there are still gaps and we are keen to help plug these!
• Did you miss the training session in your area?
• Do you have interested volunteers who might like to get involved, with a bit of encouragement and support?
• Do you just want to polish up your planning letter writing skills?
We have organised 2 training sessions for November, open to all CGTs, and hope that you or your CGT colleagues will come:
Responding to Planning Applications affecting historic designed landscapes
10 to 4.15pm, Tuesday 4 November
70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ
Meet and exchange ideas with other CGTs, hear from our key partners in conserving historic landscapes, and learn how to respond to planning applications! This day follows the format of previous HLP planning training sessions, providing a detailed overview of the planning system and ways that CGTs can engage with it, finishing with a look at how to write a planning application comment letter. (Run with support from the Garden History Society conservation team.)
Write better letters! A short, practical session with tips and discussion to hone your responses to planning applications. (We hope to be able to link this session to new letter templates being produced by the AGT-GHS Joint Conservation Committee.)
It is likely that we will not run planning training for a while after November as we move to concentrate on other topics next year, so do sign up if you possibly can. We hope to see you in November!
