CPRE planning experts to hold Parish seminar and workshop
The Campaign to Protect Rural England has organised a seminar designed to help Parish Councillors and other interested parties from amenity groups in their work to enhance the countryside of their parish. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, 11th November from 9.30am to 3pm at Sutton Scotney Hall, near Winchester.
A landscape character assessment at Chilbolton
The morning session will include a local planning workshop where councillors will be able to share concerns and best practice, with input from experienced CPRE Hampshire planning volunteers. Delegates are invited to send in topics for discussion before the event, so that they can work through current concerns with a team of experts.
Entitled "Enhance the countryside in your Parish", the seminar's aim is to share experience, and to hear about how CPRE's current campaigns can help local Parish Council's improve their countryside. It will cover the topics of Landscape Character Assessments, shared space and reduction of roadside signage, local litter campaigns, and CPRE Hampshire's Countryside and Design Awards, as well as offering a planning workshop to work through current concerns.
An optional lunch is offered, giving the opportunity for further informal discussions. Two minutes of silence will be observed at 11.00am.
