Our focus is on helping councils get an up to date plan in place. Whether you have an adopted plan in place or not, there are areas that are driving a lot of questions: objectively assessed needs (OAN) and the 5-year land supply (5YLS).
We've produced some materials which should help you with this and can also do some plan making support with your authority (for a discussion about whether this would be charged for or paid for from our grant and therefore free to you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
We offer support to authorities on reviewing the methodology for objectively assessed need and five-year land supply as well as on other matters of local plan preparation. This could be a critical friend review of your evidence work to date, help reviewing and challenging your local development scheme and project plan, some peer support or help from a political peer to work with councillors on moving the plan forward.
