Based on this experience, they produced a series of plan making principles, and advice to authorities on specific plan making issues. PAS asked Citiesmode to refresh this guidance to ensure it was relevant and accessible to its local authority clients.
Working collaboratively with PAS, Citiesmode created the PAS Good Plan Making Guide which identifies key principles for successful plan making and highlights some of the core tasks that need to be undertaken to develop a local plan. This incorporates a practical Q&A section based on real experiences of planning practitioners.
PAS were happy with the Guide produced and it is now being used by planners across England.
