Drawing on feedback from over 100 participants in five cross-sector roundtable debates organised and hosted by the TCPA in spring 2010, plus extensive feedback received from the wider profession, this report aims to address key issues for the future of planning. The roundtable events looked closely at the proposals set out in the Conservative Party Policy Green Paper, Open Source Planning - the foundations for the new Government's reform package. The debates strongly benefited from the TCPA's uniquely broad support from, and links with, the public sector, the development industry, the environmental movement, and those concerned with social justice.
We hope that this report on the roundtable debates will act as a catalyst for politicians, decision-makers, planners and other interested professionals to work towards creating a fairer and more efficient planning system. By undertaking this thorough analysis of the challenges facing the system, a series of solution-focused recommendations have been compiled, as set out within the report and listed together on the inside back cover.
