This full day course will be presented by Neil Homer, Director of ONeill Homer Ltd, an independent planning consultancy firm that has helped 15 neighbourhood plan projects in Oxfordshire (and more than 120 others) since 2013.  With the popularity of neighbourhood planning increasing, we will be looking at the opportunities and challenges of preparing successful plans. This will include how to approach them from new, how to complete them if already started, and the options for reviewing a 'made' plan. Neil will draw from a range of case studies to illustrate effective policy writing and implementation, successful community engagement, compliance with the statutory processes and where the banana skins lie for the unwary! It will therefore appeal to the novice and experienced neighbourhood planner.  Registration will commence at 9:30am with the course starting promptly at 10:00am.  Lunch is included.
