    The Journal ‘Regeneration and Renewal’ on 9 June 2009 contained a news article about the extension of the Planning for Non-Planners programme due to continued demand.  CRP had been appointed in April to deliver several of the programmes.

    The text of the article is given below:

    ‘More Planning Courses for Non-Planners

    A seminar series on planning for non-planners has been extended by regeneration skills body the HCA Academy and the British Urban Regeneration Association due to continued demand.

    The programme aims to provide non-planning professionals – especially local authority staff – with an insight into the English planning system.

    As part of the course, participants will consider how their responsibilities are affected by planning, identify how they can engage better with the planning system and lean about its role in regeneration.

    The two-day course consists of a seminar on planning policy and its relationships with design, the environment and communities.  This will be followed by a study visit to a local development site the next day.

    HCA Academy chief executive Gill Taylor said: ‘In the current economic climate, regeneration and development departments in local authorities are under increasing pressure to perform.  I’m confident this course will be welcomed by all non-planners and will help them to successfully deliver regeneration schemes across the country.’

    Courses will take place in Newcastle, Peterborough, Bristol and Sheffield during June and July.  For more information visit’
