The planning process affects all our lives and it is therefore vitally important that the parish sector remains a statutory consultee. Equally, the parish sector must justify its right to comment and pass judgement by ensuring that its responses are valid and in accordance with national planning policies. Unfortunately, many councils find it extremely difficult to keep abreast of such specialist and often complicated legislation.
Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council\'s Planning Consultative Committee confronted this issue in 2007 by obtaining the services of Avon Planning Services. Founder, Neil Pearce, is a planning consultant specialising in the parish sector. The council has greatly benefited from his unobtrusive training methods which he incorporates into each session and his expertise and knowledge has guided members in their competent and pertinent decision making process. Avon Planning Services have proven to be invaluable and are highly recommended.
