Do you need to understand how town planning works to do your job or to develop your product or service? Do you work in a multi-disciplinary team to contribute to planning applications for major development or are you involved in responding to consultations on local plans or planning applications? Maybe you are a developer and just want to have better conversations with your planning consultants or local authority development management officers.
This course will get you up to speed on how the English Planning systems works and help you to navigate complex planning processes. Delivered by the Citiesmode team and featuring explanations of planning law from legal experts, this highly practical course is aimed at non planning professionals working in or with the planning and development sector. It may also provide a useful introduction to urban planners who are new to or considering working in planning in England
Taking you through planning essentials, the course takes a step by step look at how the planning works in practice. It covers the role of local plan and explains development management processes. It also covers how section 106 and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL Payments) apply to individual developments; for those working in the public sector and infrastructure providers this element of the course provides the essential information on how planning contributions are defined and secured. The main players involved in assessing planning applications and decisions making are introduced, for example, councillors on planning committees. Key sources of useful information for further guidance and learning are also highlighted.
This course includes a special bonus module “Section 106 and CIL Contributions”. This shows you how to calculate CIL payments and explains the mains steps of the CIL process including when to claim relief. It also explains how Section 106 agreements are monitored implemented after planning permissions is granted. Likely to be of particular relevance to developers and architects involved in submitting applications, this module on getting the CIL process right can help ensure you don’t pay more than you need to and avoid penalty fees of thousands of pounds.
