Councillor Briefing - Planning Committees members

We have a wide range of briefings to cover the key issues to be addressed by planning committee members.

If there are other topics that we could usefully add to this list do let us know.

Making robust planning decisions which can be defended to the public and at appeal can be challenging. This presentation will help councillors better understand how to make sound and defensible planning decision in the context of ‘Localism'.

In partnership with Cabe at Design Council we've created a councillor briefing session on planning and design. You can work through it yourself, or it can be delivered in a session.

It covers:

  • where design fits in the planning system

  • help with understanding the basics of good design and what makes good places

  • local authority good practice approaches to design.
