Consultation during both the plan making and the application stage forms a central part of the planning process; however, is this being carried out effectively? Local planning authorities are now also required to engage constructively with neighbouring authorities on cross boundary matters, how is this working in practice? This seminar will look at views from planning professionals, developers and stakeholders based upon their experiences of consultation and will share examples of best practice where successful engagement has been undertaken without incurring extensive delays.
