Event description

Description

A Planning Skills Lead Practice Event with City of Edinburgh Council


With Local Development Plan proposals commonly seen as extra to council business plans what do planners need to know about local government finance and vica versa?


How can planners better communicate the funding implications of delivering growth to their finance colleagues? Find out what City of Edinburgh and Fife Council are putting in place to help delivery of their local development plans.


Can the Scottish Government proposal for delivery programmes contribute to more local authority-wide
collaboration?



Speakers will include:


Paul Lawrence, Executive Director of Place, City of Edinburgh Council*

Key Note Speaker


Don Peebles, Head of CIPFA

Thoughts on the opportunities and barriers to closer working between planners and local government finance officers.


Ben Wilson, Kate Hopper and Sat Patel, City of Edinburgh Council

Representatives from Planning and Finance share their learning on using corporate governance and LDP action programmes to work across the council on delivering development.


Bill Lindsay, Development Plan Service Manager, Fife Council

Hear about Fife Council's journey to more collaboratively, corporate approaches to implementing their Local Development Plan




We will also be running a video stream for staff who cannot make the event in person. Please use the separate booking option if you wish to use this facility as log in details need to be sent out in advance.
