Why is this necessary?
The role of officers and designers
will radically change in the near future as national and local planning
policies are progressing towards a more inclusive and open planning system,
with significantly increased community involvement and empowerment. Emerging
national policy will soon put community engagement at the heart of the planning
process, at all stages of design.
In preparation for this change,
Nottingham City Council has recently launched the Community Engagement Guide,
which states the city’s ambitious expectations regarding public involvement in
design and planning processes.
During this session, you will learn:
CALLING TO ACTION
How to understand your setting and the
motivations within it
How to identify and engage natural leaders
How to find opportunities and barriers, and
work with them
How to understand planning language
How to know who to contact
How to use planning language for community
