£30 per member council delegate per one-hour session worth 1 CPD point.

We are working in partnership with our fellow County Associations to enable a more diverse range of topics.

The Suffolk Association (SALC) is currently offering 4 sessions on planning.

When you register for this webinar you will receive a series of automated confirmations and reminders direct from the "SALC Zoom webinar account"; please ensure you read them all. Please check your junk folder in case your local security settings block these emails.

Session Four

14 October 2pm

Conservation areas, listed buildings, trees, roads and enforcement of planning

These new planning webinars have been developed in partnership with Birketts, Solicitors.

Tom Newcombe is a Partner and Head of Planning and Environment. He is an experienced Solicitor specialising in planning, environmental and highways law and joined Birketts with significant experience as a planning solicitor within the national planning team of an international law firm.

Local councils often feel at a disadvantage when dealing with planning matters on behalf of communities due to the complexities which have continued to grow despite various national reviews.

These webinars aim to help untangle the planning framework by looking at the key elements of process, procedure and different ways this can be managed by a town, parish or community council.
