Welcome to Planning Advisory Service’s (PAS) Local Plan support programme. We are grant funded by the Department for Levelling Up, Homes & Communities (DLUHC) to provide advice and support to Local Planning Authorities that are making or reviewing their Local Plan. Our support ranges from a friendly catch-up with our experienced team to more hands-on support and advice from PAS and its expert partners.
Many councils find the PAS support a useful and complementary addition to their plan making activity. PAS support offers an independent and critical friend review of your plan-making activity – aiming to complete support projects within 4-6 weeks. The support is both light-touch - we try not to get in the way of your day-to-day plan-making activity, however it is detailed enough to be useful and provides recommendations to keep your plan-making activity on track and reduce/mitigate risk.
Our grant fund pot isn't bottomless and while we can't pretend to be able to help and support every council, we are open to hearing from all councils that are postively preparing plans. If you think any of the above would be useful and would like to find out more please contact [email protected]
