The town planning support service, Planning Aid for London (PAL) launched a new online planning library. This library aims to help the public understand how and why their neighbourhoods are changing. Part of their overall initiative to provide free support on planning and development to those who cannot afford it. Furthermore, it aims to create awareness of how more people can get involved with local planning matters.
Who Can Use the Service?
The library is open to everybody with access to the internet with an interest in their local neighbourhoods’ development. It is a known fact the UK’s planning system can be confusing to say the least. However, it is a vital part of how decisions are made that will affect all our futures. Whether your interest is invested in your business on the high street or maybe you want more play areas for children. Town planning is the core of the decision-making process that guides development.

If you live in London, you can benefit from an abundance of knowledge and articles brought together on the website. Guides and leaflets are available to break down everything you need to know about London’s planning system.
