Submission to the Communities and Local Government Committee on the Government’s Review of Planning Practice Guidance: Consultation

Date: 18/1/2013

POS welcomes the overall conclusions and recommendations made by Lord Taylor in the Review of Planning Practice Guidance. We strongly believe that a central DCLG endorsed on-line repository for all planning guidance is critical and that it must be easily and freely accessible, succinct and kept up-to-date.

We believe that giving the responsibility for maintaining and managing to the DCLG Chief Planner is correct but we are concerned that the task or reviewing and consolidating existing guidance may not be practicable within DCLG's current resources. We therefore urge that appropriate public and private sector practitioner representatives be invited to assist DCLG and confirm that POS is ready and keen to participate.
