PAS promotes education for all in the planning process, to encourage community engagement in creating positive places. With over 20 years of experience, the expertise of our staff and volunteers inspires and empowers people across Scotland.
PAS offers specialist training for seldom heard groups, including Gypsy/Travellers and black and ethnic minority groups, to help their understanding of the planning system and how they can influence it to best meet their particular needs. PAS training for seldom heard groups is delivered by various built environment professionals. We can deliver training where you are on weekdays or Saturdays.
As part of our training we offer independent and impartial advice as well as continued aftercare and support after each event through our advice service.
PAS training for seldom heard groups is always specifically tailored to meet the specifics needs of the individuals and groups with whom we work. If you would like to arrange a PAS ‘seldom heard group’ training event please call David McAllister on 0131 659 9775 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
PAS has launched a set of new guidance material: Recognition of unique Gypsy/Traveller culture that seeks to increase awareness and knowledge of the Scottish planning system and engagement between Gypsy/Travellers, planning professionals, elected members, the media and community councillors.
