Planning Futures is a think tank dedicated to developing new ideas for planning in the UK.  As we face ever growing pressures to build more homes, and deliver the infrastructure that our economy needs to thrive, it is essential that we get our planning policies right.

As the only think tank dedicated solely to this field, we offer an independent, pragmatic approach to planning issues.  Our research programme is informed by our expert advisory board, and provides a strong evidence base for unlocking UK’s development potential.

We will be making the case for properly resourced planning departments across England and for greater transparency, consistency and effectiveness in decision making by officers and at committee.
