Sometimes it feels as if the planning system is unfathomable and inaccessible.  Even the ways Local Authorities access money for social infrastructure for developments, like Section 106 and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CiL), feels unrelated to actual community needs.  It’s not always easy to know what you can and can’t do to influence and engage with planning and development.

This two-part series of workshops is designed to help us explore possible ways that we can have more of a voice in the planning process, in the allocation of social infrastructure funds gathered by local authorities, and in local government decision making.

In this one day event, we will “hack” the planning system to explore:

  • Where the power is – who has control, who needs a voice
  • What we need to effectively engage in the planning system
  • What support you need to influence development in your area
  • The opportunities for learning and development


These two events are part of the work of the community-led regeneration network.
