Training: Low Carbon Development & Renewable Energy – Planning Policy

Training for Local Authority Planners, Council Members, Planning Committee Members and Developers

Our training courses help Local Authority Planning Officers and Planning Committee Members understand the implications of government’s policy, the technologies they were likely to see in planning applications, and how their policies affect developments. They can help developers understand what planning policy means and what they need to include in their applications.

Our technical training sessions, workshops and site visits, cover topics such as:

  • Large scale renewable energy installations
  • Renewable heat and electricity for buildings
  • Low carbon design of housing and non-domestic buildings
  • Design for climate adaptation
  • Planning policy to support low carbon developments
  • Assessing planning applications
  • Carbon Calculations

Our training style is very responsive, so we incorporate lots of case studies, question and discussion sessions to make sure everyone has a chance to delve into the issues that are relevant to them, and can share experiences with others in the room.

Feedback from these training sessions:

“This series of courses has been the best I’ve been to for a very long time” – Joy Tetsill – Shropshire

“A must-go-to session for every policy and development control officer”

David Clarke – Malvern Hills

“Superbly structured seminar. Well presented and the willingness to answer and receive questions was very refreshing.  Thank you.”  Cllr Tom Marshall, Lichfield DC
