COTSWOLD DISTRICT Planning training

Cotswold District Council will be holding training sessions for Parish Councils and Ward Members in respect of the Planning Enforcement function of the Council. The aim of these sessions will be to help District and Parish Councillors better understand the purpose of planning enforcement, the powers that are available to the Council and when and why these might be used.

In turn, they hope that you will be able to share this information with your neighbours and constituents and build a greater understanding of the processes and procedures involved in the enforcement function within your communities.

These sessions have been timed to coincide with the refreshed Local Enforcement Plan which is available to view on: -

Depending upon the amount of interest that is received, CDC anticipate holding one session at the District Council offices in Cirencester and another one at the Moreton Area Office.

Please indicate whether you would be interested in attending one of the training sessions and if so, whether you would like to attend the Cirencester or Moreton event (so that CDC can monitor numbers and make sure they make the most effective use of resources). Email:

Once the level of interest is ascertained, CDC will propose some dates and then fix a time(s) that suits the majority.

Please respond by email as soon as possible and by no later than 16th February.

If CDC haven't heard from you by then, they will assume that there is no appetite for a training session.

Kindest regards,

Scott Britnell Senior Planning Enforcement Officer Cotswold District Council
