Chief Planning Officers I

The Corporate and Strategic Influence of Planning in Local Authorities

This research looks at the current corporate and strategic influence of planning in local authorities.

Through a detailed analysis of management structures in 212 local authorities, this study found that only 23% of local authorities surveyed in the UK and Ireland had a head of planning service that reported directly to the local authority Chief Executive. A significant variation in management structures was observed within and across regions. This study also found that 9% of local authorities had no clear role assigned to the head of planning service.
