Local plan route-mapper and toolkit launched

Words: Huw Morris

The Planning Advisory Service (PAS) has unveiled a route-mapper and toolkit offering practical advice to councils on how to review and update local plans.

Planning authorities are required to review and if necessary update their local plan policies within five years of adoption if not sooner. 

The PAS initiative, which was piloted with several local authorities, covers all stages of plan-making to help councils to show that their local plan reviews are robust and objective. The resource also includes case studies and tips from sector experts.

The mapper and toolkit replace PAS’s legal compliance and soundness checklists.
