We commissioned research from Beaufort Research to identify attitudes, perceptions and expectations of the Planning system.

This report provides evidence on people’s opinions on how existing planning system works. It has also provided a valuable insight into the issues that people expect the planning system to address in the future. This project has identified:

  • The level of public understanding about planning;
  • The issues/priorities that the public consider planning should address;
  • What decisions should be made at what level; and
  • Areas of planning that can be removed/amended to better serve the wider public interest.
