SP=EED® is our free guide to effective community engagement in planning and offers a practical framework for carrying out engagement projects. SP=EED® Verification is our two-part programme which verifies competence in using the SP=EED approach and develops the “softer skills” required for effective community engagement.

PAS also offers training in facilitation, mediation and conflict resolution. Charretteplus® Verification training is currently being developed.

PAS was commissioned in 2014 by The Scottish Government to produce a series of guides aimed at creating better engagement of Gypsy/Travellers within the Scottish planning system. Full details and the guides can be viewed at this link.

The PAS information sheets are a useful guide for anybody who is involved with the planning system in any way.
