Event Details

Flamingo Land, Glenborrodale and Coul Links – these high profile access cases are just some examples where Ramblers Scotland has been involved in planning issues in recent years.

But a small planning application for a new house can also have a huge impact on local access if opportunities to comment are missed. This can mean well-used paths are lost, or wild places concreted over.

This session will give an outline of how you can get involved in responding to applications or to local placemaking activities. We’ll briefly look at local development plans, individual applications as well as how to understand national and local planning policy. You’ll also learn how you can get involved and where to get more support.

The session will help you to make sure that local access and paths are protected when new planning applications come along.

This session will be facilitated by Helen Todd, Ramblers Scotland’s campaigns & policy manager.

There are 15 places available for this session, but please add your name to the waiting list if the event is already full and we’ll contact you directly if a space becomes available.

We hope you can join us!
