Localism and Community Engagement - Towards 2011
13 December. RTPI East of England. Government Office for the East of England, Eastbrook, Cambridge.
This conference and workshop will look at what the government's localism agenda means for planners. The idea of working with local people is not a new one and planners have been doing this for years, but the context now is different to anything that has gone before.
This event aims to provide clarity on what is expected of the profession and give it the confidence to move forward. The morning session will give participants an overview of the current localism agenda and what it means for community engagement. Recent examples of successful working with communities will be highlighted. The afternoon will provide the opportunity to work with colleagues on current issues where shared experience and specialist input would be useful.
Cost: £95 + VAT.
