Planning Aid England (PAE) has been helping individuals and communities engage with the planning system for over 45 years.
Our services are guided by the following practice:
Being collaborative and supportive
We aim to understand your needs and always try to address them in relation to planning.
Being clear and knowledgeable
We aim to explain what is and what isn’t possible in relation to planning.
We use good practice and case studies to get the right messages across and broker outcomes.
The work of PAE is supported by over 200 dedicated volunteers. All out volunteers are members of the RTPI and are expected to act in accordance with the RTPI Volunteer Code.
Most volunteers are in full time employment and work in local government, private practice or in academia.
Every volunteer who gives advice is an experienced, Chartered town planner and we seek to ensure they have the necessary skills, knowledge and expertise to assist.
MRTPI volunteers are indemnified (insured) for the advice they give.
