Event description

Description

Peckham Vision, Community Southwark and Southwark Law Centre have come together with the aim of supporting community engagement with planning issues in the borough.

This interactive workshop will seek to identify the best methods for allowing individuals to engage in the planning process, through collaborative discussions between participants. The outcomes of these discussions will inform future attempts to develop a programme that residents can use to help their communities gain a better understanding of planning issues and the planning process.

Workshop sessions on the day will include a brief outline of the planning system and the structure of council decision-making as well as an introduction to the effect of legal duties to consult the local community and consider equality impacts on planning decisions. However, the focus will be on allowing participants to share their experience of the planning system and the particular challenges that individuals face when engaging with the council on planning issues, and engaging in group discussions as to how these challenges can be overcome.

A programme for the day will be sent to participants nearer the time. The workshop will commence at 10:00 with registration and refreshments available from 9:45.
