Event description

Description

The planning system is meant to balance competing demands so that land is used is in the public interest. While this is a worthy objective, it is often the case that the public interest is a complex mix of conflicting ideas, both from individuals and the wider community, from which problems arise for all parties.

Mediation is helpful in reconciling competing interests by integrating differences, and even in securing creative outcomes. The chair of Scottish Mediation, Robin Burley, and partner Lindsey Burley, who run Eskhill and Co (www.eskhill.com), are running a practical introduction to using mediation skills. Covering the principles of mediations and its practice, how mediators help, a model approach to mediation, and provide opportunities to try mediation out themselves; it’s the perfect opportunity for anyone hoping to develop their skills or understand how mediation is relevant in the planning system.

Mediating Ways – the skills of integrating difference will be held on the 14th March at the Braidwood centre, Edinburgh 6pm – 8pm (free for volunteers)
