We are delighted to announce that we have a full series of talks lined up for the winter. Until the end of the year they will continue to be offered via Zoom but Covid and venue permitting, we hope to hold some indoor meetings in 2022.
Our next talk will take place via Zoom on:
Tuesday 7 December at 7.30 p.m.
Chris Cathrine, Director of Caledonian Conservation Ltd and Vice Chair of SWT Stirling & Clacks will talk about
THE ROLE OF AN ECOLOGICAL CONSULTANT AND THE PLANNING SYSTEM
Chris has gained considerable experience of ecology and where it fits into legislation, policy, and planning, gained during 14 years as an ecological consultant, and four years working for NGOs and local authority. He has also authored three papers on devolved environmental legislation, written guidance, informed policy, and worked on all stages of developments. With this background he has engaged with planning from a range of angles, which has given him a broader understanding of the systems in Scotland, and how best to engage with them to benefit biodiversity.
Please note that it is imperative to book in advance. Also, on the day of talk you should start to link into the meeting in good time, and no later than10 - 15 minutes before the start as the joining link will be locked once the meeting has started.
