We are delighted that we have been able to host two events in Parliament this month to discuss the Government’s proposed changes to the planning system. These events have allowed members to come together to discuss the implications that these changes would have for our industry and to articulate their views to Ministers.
To consolidate these efforts, Planning Futures will be submitting a brief response to the Government’s open consultation (which closes on 2nd March 2023) on the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: reforms to national planning policy.
Whilst we are aware that many of our member organisations will be developing their own responses to the consultation, the Planning Futures response will draw on the expertise of our cross-sector membership to highlight areas of common concern.
Once completed, in addition to official submission, the response will also be circulated widely to Government stakeholders and to MPs of all political parties to encourage debate and wider dissemination.
In advance of the workshop, Member’s are encouraged to send through any thoughts or evidence they feel should be considered as part of the workshop.
Those who attend will also be sent a draft of the response in advance of submission for further comment and the final document will be made available on the Planning Futures website.
