Broads Authority hosts VIP planner

Kath-RansonThe Broads Authority hosted a visit from the National President of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and talked to her about the challenges of managing planning in the Broads.

Authority officers hosted the visit from Kath Ranson during the RTPI’s centenary year. It was arranged by Peter Warner, a Broads Authority member and immediate past Chair of the East of England branch of the RTPI.
Director of Planning and Resources Andrea Long said: “Kath works for Pembrokeshire County Council but also spent several years at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and therefore was well versed in the challenges members of the National Parks family all face when it comes to planning matters.”

Ms Ranson visited the Authority’s Yare House office for a presentation about the Greater Norwich Development Partnership from Broadland District Council Head of Planning Phil Courtier and a presentation about the challenges of planning in the Broads by Andrea Long and Broads Authority Head of Development Management Cally Smith.

She then visited Norwich Yacht Station and was taken from there through the city by boat to Whitlingham Country Park.
