Levelling Up - the role of planning is a report by an independent group of planning practitioners and academics, who are actively engaged in researching, practicing, and teaching planning.

For background and context, please see 'Planning needs to be central to the levelling up agenda', a guest blog put forward by the report's authors here.

This report follows on from two reports published in 2020 following the government's announcement of their planning White Paper. In August 2020 they published 'The Wrong Answers to the Wrong Questions' - find that here, and in October 2020, they published  'The Right Answers to the Right Questions' - find that here.
