The final report of the Raynsford Review of Planning was published in November 2018 - this laid out recommendations for the reforms of the English planning system to make it fairer, better resourced and capable of producing quality outcomes, while still encouraging the production of new homes.

In late 2019, the TCPA will be reporting on the progress of government's engagement with the review and the discussions at this regional meeting will feed into this process.
