Plan Making Reforms

On 25th July 2023 the Government published a consultation on proposals to make local plans (and minerals and waste plans) simpler, faster to prepare, and more accessible. The Levelling up and Regeneration Bill sets out changes to the legislation that governs how plans are produced and through this consultation Government are asking for views on certain proposals to implement these changes. The consultation is open until 18th October 2023.

On 3rd August 2023 PAS held a Webinar with officials from DLUHC to learn more about the consultation on implementing planning reforms. This was an information giving session providing an overview of the consultation and some Q & A. A recording of the webinar and the presentation materials from the event series are available below. PAS also held a series of in person events throughout September to help LPAs prepare their responses to the consultation.
