How can the planning system, policy and practice help protect and expand our trees and woodlands which make up our Urban Forests?
We are delighted to be a Lead Partner on this event hosted by the Trees Design Action Group (TDAG) that will explore how the planning system, policy and practice can help protect and expand our trees and woodlands which make up our urban forests.
It is essential that we protect and expand the trees and woodlands which collectively make up our urban forests for the multiple social, economic and environmental benefits that they can deliver. However, ambition as represented by government policies (NPF4) and recent legislation (Planning Scotland Act 2019) along with the need for healthy place-making and climate resilience, does not often or, indeed, very rarely coincide with successful delivery on the ground.
Join us in Stirling for this seminar that will identify and discuss the key steps required to make a positive shift in the planning and development process aligned with emerging policy and best practices. The seminar seeks to inform and empower those working in planning and development control and those involved with delivery onsite. This seminar is aimed at everyone who has the potential to impact trees and woodlands during the planning, design and development stages.
- How can we close the gap between ambition and successful delivery on the ground?
- Who are the key players?
- What are the barriers and how can they be overcome?
