Planning Aid England (PAE), which is a part of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), has been awarded an exciting new contract from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to support communities in preparing for neighbourhood planning, including step by step guides, checklists and pro-forma reports for March 2015. Communities will be able to adapt these resources to fit their own needs.
Cath Ranson, RTPI President said: “We are very pleased to have won this new programme of work on improving the guidance and tools available to communities wanting to get involved in planning. This is the type of service we are looking to expand as part of the Institute’s support for communities. It goes to the heart of our Royal Charter to advance town planning in the public interest.”

A short survey has been launched to develop the production of a collection of template letters and other materials to aid communities undertaking the neighbourhood planning process. These resources, entitled, ‘Neighbourhood Planning Aids’ may also include top-tips, podcasts and tutorials from community groups and individuals who have already gone through the process.
The survey will remain open until 9 November. You can find the survey here
