DPEA: Planning appeals training for communities

The Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) is part of the Scottish Government, dealing with planning appeals and a range of other casework including wind farm proposals and electricity grid infrastructure. 

Join this virtual event to hear more about DPEA’s role, the way it works and how communities can get involved in this part of the planning process. The event is open to all Community Councils and community groups who have an interest or a statutory role in the planning system. 

Planning Aid for Scotland and reporters from DPEA will introduce the key themes, followed by a panel discussion on questions from the audience.
