2019 Events:

Landscape Training - for Neighbourhood Planning Groups, Parish councils and Amenity Societies

Haughley Park Barn, Haughley, Stowmarket, IP14 3JY

Tuesday 15 October 2019. 9.30am - 1pm

Cost: Members £30 Non Members £75

Enhanced training aimed at understanding landscape proposals as part of development schemes, including the assessment of landscapes with a view to delivering Neighbourhood Plans.

The session will be delivered by Ruth Elwood, Landscape Architect, who returns to explain how to read and respond to landscape masterplans accompanying housing applications. She is joined by Alison Farmer, one of the UK's leading professionals in landscape character assessment. Alison’s work covers landscape and visual impact assessments, historic and designed landscapes and protected landscape guidance which are particularly relevant to neighbourhood planning.

Delegates will have the chance to raise their own cases with Ruth and Alison and gain valuable technical skills to respond to the challenges of new housing development across Suffolk.

Please contact the SPS Office Manager on or 01787 247179 to book your place.
