Government’s reforms of the planning system
Andrew Towlerton, SLCC National Planning Advisor
How will the planning reforms affect your council?
This session includes vital updates for clerks in England including details on the latest round of funding for Neighbourhood Plans.
The Government’s Planning White Paper ‘Planning for the Future’ proposes ‘radical’ and ‘far-reaching’ reforms of the planning system in England which will ‘streamline’ and ‘modernise’ it. This session will explain the key aspects of the reforms that will have implications for the sector and how they are likely to work in practice.
It is being led by Andrew Towlerton, SLCC National Planning Advisor, who is a qualified planner and has worked in various senior planning roles in the public and private sectors. He is also a parish clerk so is familiar with local councils.

Clerks seem to have a disproportionate chance of being bullied for simply doing their job. Find out how to identify what bullying and harassment looks like and what to do about it if it happens to you.
