Training for local planning authorities

We offer training in a variety of subjects related to landscape and visual assessment, sustainable urban form and renewable energy and how these subjects contribute to planning. We can debunk the mysteries of LVIA and show how assessments can be interpreted to assist decision-making. We have trained local authority officers on what to take into account when considering the landscape and visual effects of wind energy.  In Wales we have trained developer’s landscape architects and planners on how to use LANDMAP in landscape and visual impact assessment and in public inquiries. The more general use of LANDMAP in planning has also been the subject of other training sessions for local authority officers and council members.

We can structure training to last a whole day or a half day depending on the subject and number of people involved.
