Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils is working hard to finalise the training offers for 2010 – some specialist courses are jointly organised with the SLCC – namely Burial Management and Project Management. Details of “Understanding the
Planning System” are to follow. 2010 will be a challenging year for us all, with the prospect of spending
cuts, tighter budgets and devolved services and I urge you all to consider greater sharing and partnership working in order to manage these changing times. GAPTC is happy to promote shared knowledge
The future of our UPDATE magazine is also likely to involve change as Gloucestershire County Council’s funding is withdrawn in April. More details later this month, as we consider various options.
Best wishes from us all at GAPTC.
