Planning Advisory Service
The Planning Advisory Service (PAS) was established in 2004 to provide planning help, advice and training to councils in England. It is part of the Local Government Association and provides training, guidance and forums for planning advise.
Councils can join us as subscribers and will then gain access to events and briefings to keep them up-to-date, a quarterly ‘best practice' update and annual training session for councillors or planning committees.
“We are still supporting the Service with a £1m grant. However, all parts of the public sector need to play their part in tackling the deficit and delivering greater value for money for the taxpayer.
“PAS will become more focused and targeted on working with councils whose performance needs to improve, while improving value for money.”
