Lockdown has provided a great opportunity to participate in a number of on-line training and networking events and, this month, our Director Pippa is pleased to have been invited to participate in a Mastermind session organised by our client XUSA. This is one of a series of events held by XUSA to facilitate learning and development amongst their network, discussing challenges participants face and learning from the experience of others.
With the audience being mainly England based, but with many also operating in Scotland, or considering doing so, Pippa’s role will be to outline how the planning system in Scotland works and some of the challenges in that, and to highlight how best to navigate the way through it. She will also put this into context by using our recent work with XUSA on their planning application for the change of use of a vacant office in Aberdeen to an exciting mixed-use development as a case study.
She’s looking forward to hearing from other participants how they have fared in the planning system in Scotland and their views on how that compares with the English system, including the recently proposed reforms of that.
Thanks for reading!
Pippa and Maggie
