NPN quarterly meeting – 18 April 2013

Please can I have topic suggestions for the next meeting?

One suggestion is that we discuss some of the content of the previous ‘Design in the Planning System’ quarterly meeting. There was a lot of information given and no time to talk about it and how groups could use the policy etc to help raise the standard of design in their area.

Any thoughts about that?

Planning course – 10, 17 & 24 April

Please note: that the Planning Course is now fully booked; numbers are limited because of the format of the workshop event.

However, if there are people who would like to attend the two presentations on 10 and 17 April and are prepared to go on a waiting list to see whether the workshop places are all taken, please let me know.

The course fee will still be £10.00, as the workshop is being subsidised by RIBA Bristol and Bath: the Bristol Society of Architects.

If you have booked a place but are now unable to take it up, please let me know so that I can open it up to other people.
