Planners CPD Programme

April 2020-March 2021 Programme

East Midlands Councils have again arranged a programme of 6 low cost CPD knowledge based seminars for both local authority and private sector planners. The programme will tackle issues of relevance to local planning authorities.  The 2020/21 seminar topics have been chosen by each of the county Chief Planning Officers (CPO) groups. These topics will change in future years to reflect the diverse nature of planning.
