White Paper: Planning for the Future
The Government has issued a White Paper: Planning for the Future. Consultation is open to everyone. The Government is keen to hear from a wide range of interested parties from across the public and private sectors, as well as from the general public. It will last for 12 weeks from 6 Aug (till 29 Oct)
Another document, entitled: Changes to the current planning system, has been issued at the same time. This consultation too is open to everyone but the consultation period is slightly shorter, lasting for 8 weeks from 6 Aug and will close at 23.45 on 1 Oct.
Both documents can be downloaded below in .pdf format.
