NPN / UWE Planning Event – 9 June 2012
Saturday 9 June 2012
SAVE THE DATE
The Bristol Neighbourhood Planning Network are working with the
University of the West of England (UWE) to develop a conference on how the community
can be most effective in planning their neighbourhood.
This conference will be tailored to what we want to know about planning and development in the current financial climate and changing planning legislation, and will be different from the current round of conferences which are only looking at the provisions of the Localism Act.
An initial meeting has been held at UWE to identify conference themes, but if you have particular matters that you would like to see included, please contact Sandra.Manley@uwe.ac.uk
In the meantime, as the ideas develop, please save this date. We hope this will be the first of series of NPN/UWE events that will help inform us to how to engage effectively and efficiently with the planning of our neighbourhoods.
