The PAF meets with members of the Local Planning Authority (LPA) on a regular basis, but is independent of the LPA. It provides an opportunity for open discussion and dissemination of information from the LPA.
As a practice working primarily in Brighton & Hove, the PAF is an important facilitator between agents and the Local Planning Authority. Members discuss general matters of joint interest and share and hear ideas for the continual improvement of the city’s planning service.
Following the AGM, Liz Hobden, Head of Planning, City Development & Regeneration, held a Q&A session and gave a planning services update – outlining proposed plans for improvement to the service going forward.
