Summary: We plan to survey local planning authorities in November to find out how they are applying NPPF policies on tranquillity in their local plans and decision making. We will use the findings to produce a briefing. This will support branches in campaigning on tranquillity and help to publicise good practice at local authorities.
To improve the response rate we may ask you if you can help by contacting officers you know at your local authorities to encourage them to respond. Please send us the names of any officers you would like us to contact.
We plan to hold a seminar at national office in January 2015 on the application of tranquillity in the planning system including at public inquiries. Please let us know us as soon as possible if you would be interested in attending the seminar.
Summary: We are inviting applications to bid for a total of £5,000 for branch or regional group projects aimed at helping to protect the Green Belt. Applications should be made to Paul Miner at national office by Friday 24 October, using the application form and referring to the criteria in the annex to this Circular.
Summary: The new solar energy Policy Guidance Note (PGN) has now been approved by the Trustee Board, and is attached to this circular. We ask that you disseminate and promote the new PGN as widely as possible, and use it as a framework for your campaigning on solar energy issues.
