‘Planning legislation, policy and procedure is an ever increasingly complex part of the development process. Good planning is inseparable from good design and vice versa. Assessing planning issues should not be left to Stage 3 but be evaluated from the outset of every commission. For example, will the Client Requirements be acceptable under planning policy? If not, there is no value in developing design solutions for a proposal that is unlikely to gain consent. The Client Team must ensure adequate resources are allocated and appointments ae made to managing planning issues throughout the project. This applies to both pre and post planning submission.’
