A Planning Skills webinar aimed at local authority and key agency staff in planning roles is now available to view online.
Led by the Peatland ACTION team at the Crichton Carbon Centre, NatureScot and the Improvement Service, the session discusses the role of peatlands in the Scottish environment and how the planning system can help with their restoration and protection.
The training aims to help planners understand how their processes align with Peatland Code and Permitted Development Rights, and how this supports the Scottish Government’s aim is to put 250,000 hectares of degraded peatland on the road to recovery by 2030, which is included in the Government 2020 Infrastructure Investment Plan.
Peatland ACTION offers a range of training for planners, project designers, surveyors and contractors.
