Visiting Planning Aid

Friday, February 23, 2007

On a recent visit to York Meg met with the people of Planning Aid to discuss their work. They provide free, independent and professional help, advice and support on planning issues to people and communities who cannot afford to hire a planning consultant. Planning Aid complements the work of local authorities but is wholly independent of them.


It has been at the forefront of engaging communities in the planning process. Now Planning Aid is working to further widen engagement in the planning process and to give an equal voice to all those involved in planning. It was started by the Town and Country Planning Association in 1973 and in most UK regions is run by the Royal Town Planning Institute.


Planning Aid can help people to:

  • understand and use the planning system,
  • participate in preparing plans,
  • prepare their own plans for the future of their community,
  • comment on planning applications,
  • apply for planning permission or appeal against refusal of permission, and
  • represent themselves at public inquiries.

Planning Aid helps to meet one of the key aims of the government's planning reform agenda, which is to place community engagement at the heart of the planning system.
