This course is aimed at ecological consultants who want to gain a better understanding of the planning system.

As ecological consultants we often work within the framework of the planning system. This course will help you to understand how the planning system works, how you can work better within it to help your clients, and how you can ensure that your ecological survey reports contribute to the planning process.

This one day course covers the following topics:

  • The planning process
  • Strategic planning
  • Planning legislation
  • Planning conditions
  • Section 106 agreements
  • Consultation zones (wildlife)
  • Local authority obligations
  • New permitted development rules
  • Reports and consultant duties
  • Mitigation and monitoring

The course will be run by a principal ecologist who has worked in ecological consultancy and local authority planning departments for a number of years.
