Event description

Description


Overview

This event follows on from the recent Partners in Planning Event (6th September 2018) and is intended to explain the role of the Key Agencies to early and mid-career level planners from the public, private and third sectors.


The Key Agencies are a group of public bodies engaged in planning and development decisions. They include Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), Historic Environment Scotland (HES), Architecture and Design Scotland (A&DS), Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS), Forest Enterprise Scotland, Scottish Water, Transport Scotland, Scottish Enterprise and Sport Scotland.



Attendees will gain an understanding of the remits of the individual Agencies as well as how to get the best out of them as part of their daily work. They will learn from best practice and also engage with real life case study examples involving different Key Agencies. There will also be an update regarding potential changes arising from the new Planning (Scotland) Bill.
