Following on from the meeting on 1st June Power Up is an opportunity to take part in a unique training weekend designed to help you get the knowledge, confidence and contacts to use the legal and planning system to make a difference where you live.
The workshop runs from 6pm on Friday 1st July to 4pm on Sunday 3rd July
It’s a chance to hear from experts with knowledge and understanding about environmental justice, rights and the planning system.
They say Power up will leave you feeling inspired and energised – ready to apply new skills to your local issues
Who is Power Up for?
You don’t have to be an expert – whether you’re already involved in a local campaign or completely new to campaigning. Just as long as you’re interested in making your area a fairer, cleaner and healthier place – then Power Up is for you.
How will Power Up help you and your community?
Power Up will give you:
• Campaign knowledge and practical tools to share with your community.
• The confidence to speak up and get involved in making decisions.
This is particularly important because of the Government’s proposed changes to the planning system in the Localism Bill.
