Planning for a Better Future: Our planning manifesto for the government

Date: 7/7/2017

This process to create a planning manifesto started in early 2014 when POS was looking ahead to the national parliamentary elections in May 2015. The main parties were drafting their manifestos, so we thought about what we could do to help them.

This resulted in Planning for a better future: Our planning manifesto for the next government. The time since then has seen an unprecedented amount of change to the planning system, so our initial planning manifesto for the next government has morphed into an on-going planning manifesto for government.

These are think pieces that tackle a topical area within planning practice and sets out our recommendations for improvement. They comprise a growing series of Manifesto Background Papers that look in detail at specific issues. Those that are still current are summarised in our main Planning Manifesto paper that sets out the current ask from POS to the government.

The POS Manifesto has its core message that planning is key to meeting housing needs and delivering economic growth through the creation of sustainable development and POS invites the Government to work with us to build a more efficient and effective planning system.
