The next meeting of Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition will be on Tuesday 27 May from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Herb Garden Café, Llandrindod. Rob Oakey and Gwen Sanderson will be talking about low-impact development.
ALL ARE WELCOME! free admittance includes hot drink and cake served at 7pm.
The evening will include a talk on what low-impact development is, in terms of building, land use, energy, water and community. Rob and Gwen will give a brief summary of planning permission in the UK and the Welsh policy context (One Planet Development and TAN 6 and the One Planet Council), some examples of obstacles and success stories, and will discuss the relationship between the mainstream and the margins. There will be a question-and-answer session after the talk.
Rob Oakey and Gwen Sanderson were involved in Transition City Lancaster before becoming WWOOF volunteers to learn about low impact developments, especially under TAN 6, Planning Policy Wales. Currently based between Llandysul (Montgomery) and Lancaster they continue to learn about small-scale land use and low-impact living.
