The practice of strategic planning has ebbed and flowed as a force within the English Planning system. The current planning White Paper, “Planning For the Future”, proposes the removal of the Duty to Co-operate.
Although it signals an intention to create fresh means of cross boundary planning, these have yet to be set out in any detail.
This event, a collaboration between Planning Futures, LUC and Kings Chambers, will explore how a new role for strategic planning could be crafted to sit alongside the other proposals contained within “Planning For the Future”.
