Are you a member of a community Neighbourhood Planning group looking for guidance and inspiration on creating your Neighbourhood Plan?
Together with community network organisation Locality, we’re hosting a free residential ‘Planning Camp’ in Bristol, that’s designed to give communities and Neighbourhood Planning Front Runners the tools and ideas to shape where they live.
The event, including all workshops, meals and accommodation, is free, thanks to funding from the Department of Communities and Local Government. It takes place in Bristol from Sunday 3 February until Tuesday 5 February 2013.
The Planning Camp offers a combination of:
- plenary sessions featuring people who have been there and done it
- immersive design walks
- hands-on workshops
- networking with other neighbourhood planning groups
Over 200 people have already attended our Planning Camps across England this year. Participants have told us their event was ‘a great ideas’ catalyst’, and that it was ‘very enjoyable, good company, great venue, enthusiastic presenters, well organised’. See the type of things they learnt and got up to.
Practical details and registration
The event is best suited to community groups and individuals involved in Neighbourhood Planning – primarily in one of the government’s Front Runner communities, but please do contact us even if your community doesn’t fall within one of these areas.
Places are limited, so please register your interest to attend by filling in this simple online form, where you can also get more practical details about the conference. Download our flyer (PDF), with all the information on, and pass it on.
