Planning Training

The Board offers short training courses for Parish and Town Councils about planning in the protected landscape of the AONB. Training sessions in Ballinger, Markyate and Woodcote were attended by nearly 100 people representing about 40 Parish and Town Councils in and around the AONB. The training focussed on changes to the planning system and Neighbourhood Development Plans in particular.

Whilst undertaking the training a number of documents were referred to which provide further information and advice that might be useful, links to two of these are included below.
