The Planning Officers Society (POS) has been looking ahead to the national parliamentary elections in May 2015. The main parties are drafting their manifestos; POS has been looking at what it can do to help them.
POS has produced "Planning for a Better Future". It's core message is that planning is key to meeting housing needs and delivering economic growth through the creation of sustainable development and POS invites a new Government to work with it to build a more efficient and effective planning system. The document is limited to 4 key areas: Making Great Places, Simpler Planning and Tools for the Job but the main focus is Meeting Our Nation's Needs.
The manifesto has been updated as at June 2014
