Power up! Empower yourself with skills to win campaigns through planning

Saturday, January 28, 2017

A day of free Power Up training with Naomi Luhde-Thompson, Planning Specialist at Friends of the Earth. Get clued up and empower yourself to win campaigns through the planning system. The day is aimed at giving you and your community an introduction to the local planning systems and skills necessary to win successful campaigns against local development that is socially and environmentally degrading - including fracking. An understanding of planning is one of the most important tools you can have as a campaigner. The day will focus on: • Our rights under the planning system • The planning system - Its strengths and its flaws • How to influence planning decisions. The day will be tailored to the needs of the group on the day. We really hope to see you there - please do spread the word. Carla, and the North West team.
