Planning reforms: have your say by 5 February

02 February, 2016

If you care about the quality of our planning laws, it is integral to get commentary in on these supporting instruments.

The Government is currently seeking comment on the supporting instruments until 6pm 5 February 2016. The supporting instruments include the regulation and the rules and guidelines which now contain much of the substance of the planning framework, including the development assessment rules (previously the IDAS framework).

If you care about the quality of our planning laws, it is integral to get commentary in on these supporting instruments.
