In the construction industry, the term ‘planning’ generally refers to the process of obtaining planning permission, or the general subject of town and country planning, that is; plan making and development management.
The term Planning Act is commonly considered to refer to the Town and Country Planning Act, which in 1947 introduced the basis for much of the contemporary planning system. It was subsequently revised in 1968 and 1990.
It is wise therefore when referring to planning Acts to identify a specific Act, and the revision that is being referred to.
