Event description

Description

CPRE Sussex's next self-training session will take place on 12th May 2018. Subject: The importance of landscape character & value in analysing the suitability of proposed development site applications, and CPRE's work campaigning for improved protection for the High Weald and other AONBs.

Bettina Kirkham, an expert landscape planner who runs her own landscape planning business and has advised on landscape value and character in respect of a number of local planning applications, will lead our main training session. She will base what we aim to be a practical, hands-on, session around two separate workshop exercises - the first going through the process for a landscape sensitivity assessment of a site area (using the methodology used for many local authorities), and the second looking at the approach in assessing a specific example proposal.

Time permitting, we will wind up the training day with a short summary of the recent study undertaken by CPRE that demonstrates the inadequacy of the planning protection afforded to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (despite the NPPF's description of them as being entitled to the highest status of protection from development on account of their landscape and natural beauty); and the campaigning work of CPRE Sussex to try to improve protection for the High Weald AONB.

Time and venue: Saturday 12th May 10am - 1pm at Clair Hall, Perrymount Road, Haywards Heath RH16 3DN (https://www.placesforpeopleleisure.org/centres/clair-hall). Two minutes walk from HH station.

Limited space: First come, first served with preference for CPRE members/councils.
