Planning Power Up!

8 October 2016 - 11:00am - 5:00pm
Redwing Gallery, 36 Market Jew St, Penzance, TR18 2HT

This is a full day (from 11am to 5pm) skill-share and Power Up! session designed to better equip you to navigate and influence your local planning and development system. The intended outcome of this session is that you will be able to better protect your local communities against unwanted development that will cause environmental and social degredation.

The day will include:
- An Introduction to the English Planning System
- The nuts and bolts of planning in Cornwall
- Planning applications: a development near you (sharing our stories, what to look for, evidence, process points)
- Writing a good local plan policy
- Looking forward: what can we do next?

This is not a day to miss for groups who are either engaged in some way or another with planning concerns or who would like to be!

The day will be hosted and facilitated by Naomi Luhde-Thompson, Friends of the Earth's planning specialist.
Please bring a lunch to share!

Cornwall: A Million Acts of Sanctuary

Cornwall: A Million Acts of SanctuaryCornwall: A Million Acts of SanctuaryCornwall is mobilising.
From the border with England to the north, to way down in the wildness of the west, people are taking action in countless ways across our extraordinary county to offer sanctuary to those people, adults, children, grandparents, young couples, and individuals caught up and forced to abandon their homes and seek sanctuary somewhere across Europe and the Middle East. It's hard to imagine what it must be like to be as desperate, and how much you have to hope for some compassion in others, as you look for safety. There are a million ways offering sanctuary: if you're not sure how, and you want to join in then take a look at:
