Planning Reforms: Government Consultations

In the modern world we can't expect anything to stand still, least of all the planning system. Lots of PAS work is about helping Local Planning Authorites (LPAs) work and continue planning within a dynamic and changing system. To help LPAs navigate the changes curently under discussion, this page outlines the consultations that Government has most recently sought views on and which ones are currently live. We'll update it as things change. The individual topic areas of the PAS website provide more details.
