Breakfast Seminar - Effective Communication for Planning: Navigating the Wales Planning Act

Grasshopper PR is delighted to be hosting a CPD breakfast event with the Women In Property South Wales branch exploring Effective Communication for Planning in light of the new regulations set out in the Wales Planning Act (2015), on Wednesday 25 May 2016, Park House (Cardiff).

Following the adoption of the Act, requirements are now in place for pre-application consultation on ‘major’ development plans (including residential development over 10 units and commercial development over 1000sqm), and Developments of National Significance (including energy projects up to 50MW).

The event will explore in detail the new pre-application requirements and how these fit with best practice communications approaches, as well as how to identify and achieve communication and engagement objectives for each project.

In addition, special guest speakers Chair of Cardiff City Council Planning Committee - Cllr Michael Michael and Head of Planning - James Clemence will talk about the implications of the new policy from the perspective of local councillors and officers, and what they hope to see moving forward in terms of engagement and consultation with local communities, elected representatives and decision makers.
