20 November 2010 1 Comment
The guest speaker on the day will be John Martin – the Principal Planning Advisor at the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government. Prior to joining the Department, John had served as Deputy City Planner with Dublin City Council, Senior Planner with Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Co. Council, and as Senior Planning inspector with An Bord Pleanála.
Planning students will appreciate the significant changes that this Act has introduced into the planning process and this seminar will provide information and guidance on the implementation of the Act, as well as offering students the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the implications of the Act with the Principal Planning Advisor at the DoEHLG.
The format of the seminar is currently being finalised, but will involve presentations on the different aspects of the Act, followed by group discussions and a Q&A session.
The event will take place at the Br. Ignatius Connolly Complex, Western Road, UCC on Friday, 28 November. The exact time and room is to be determined shortly. Members are advised to RSVP for the event as spaces will be limited. E-mail the Planning Society at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
