A Quality Planning Service: Martin Hutchings PAS Martin presented a new performance framework to demonstrate the planning system is easy for business to engage with. The framework includes indicators on customer satisfaction, Councillor involvement and a continuous improvement strategy. It also focuses on speed and process. The aim was to commence this in January but members felt that was too soon. The initiative was supported and it was agreed Martin would forward his Powerpoint presentation so individual authorities to sign up to the initiative.
