Planning Aid England now funded to end of July

Planning Aid England’s contract under the Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods in Planning fund which supported community outreach work concluded on 31 March 2012.

However, DCLG has since formally agreed a four month continuation to their grant to the RTPI under the Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods in Planning scheme. The grant period has now been extended until 31 July 2012, and the focus of the work has been modified to reflect the final provisions of the Localism Act and in light of the new Neighbourhood Planning powers that have come into effect.
