Effective response – how to construct a response, the language to use, how to make points that are relevant, in context and need to be taken notice of, using precedent etc., which detail to pick up and concentrate on, why and where to find the specific information

Practical exercise - Material or Non-material?

Consideration – Green belt, flood planes, using the local knowledge only Local Councillors have
