Community Council TrainingOn Saturday 11th February 2012, PAS will be running a community training workshop at Francis Xavier Church Hall to discuss the planning process in relation to renewable energy developments. Renewable energy is a key part of Scotland’s growing low carbon economy – and PAS’ training workshop will help people in Falkirk understand how they can get involved.

All members of the public, community groups and community councils are invited to come along to this free training session to develop a better understanding of the process of planning for renewable energy developments of all scales (e.g. wind turbine proposals and solar panelling), and how to engage with this process as effectively as possible.

Petra Biberbach, Chief Executive, PAS said, “Whether people are responding to a renewable energy application in their area, or looking to undertake development for themselves or for their local community, PAS’s renewables training will help them through the process.

As an independent and impartial organisation, PAS has considerable expertise in community engagement in the planning system. PAS staff and volunteers look forward to facilitating the event and helping the people of Falkirk to learn more about this issue of growing importance.
