Training for Local Authority Officers and Members

Foxley Tagg offers a diverse range of courses for Local Authority Officers. These training packages can be adapted to meet the exact needs and objectives of your council.

Our bespoke training courses have been developed to include case studies and practical work shop elements. Training can be undertaken for Planning Officers in Policy and Development Control as well as those in Enforcement.

Foxley Tagg also provides a number of training courses for Elected Members, whether as refresher courses for seasoned Committee Members or for complete beginners. The courses are a comprehensive and essential guide to the fundamentals of all aspects of the planning system. Courses can be adapted to suit existing levels of understanding or to provide a focus on one specific area e.g. Planning Obligations.

As an example of our work Foxley Tagg has previously provided training for Professional Planning Staff at Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. This training programme covered a wealth of topics relating to planning, development Control and Appeals, and was specifically tailored to the needs and aims of the Authority. In this case the Local Authority had a requirement for each of the courses to be specifically designed in respect of Welsh policy and procedures, with examples and case studies based upon the National Park setting and the issues associated with such a designation.
