The Killian Pretty Review
The Killian Pretty Review published in November 2008 details 17 recommendations for improving the planning application process. The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has recently published a "Government Response to the Killian Pretty Review", which comments on the Review and outlines a broad action plan to implement the recommendations. While the original Review and subsequent government response are primarily concerned with the planning application process in detail, a number of issues relating to consultation and community engagement within this process have been raised. This briefing note deals primarily with these issues.
