Catesby's Planning and Operations Director, David Morris was part of a panel held by Planning Futures discussing the local plan making process.

Local Plans set the parameters for development within each local authority area - from high-level strategic policies, to often detailed site allocations. 

Within England’s plan-led system, they help to direct investment and shape the built environment over the long-term. 

In consequence, all built environment stakeholders have an interest in the plan making process.

The event explored how stakeholders can best engage with Local Authorities at each stage of the plan making process: from the pre-plan making stage to Regulation 18 and 19 consultations, and Examination in public.

They also discussed: How to engage with LA’s at each stage of the plan making process, how to respond to a call for sites and examples of best practice LA consultation.
