This report from TCPA (Town & Country Planning Association) focuses on their New Communities Group (NCG), established to help develop plans, provide political support and encourage a sharing of knowledge and best practice.
The paper is split into sections, documenting:
- the key lessons from the NCG;
- an example of the proactive collaboration between NCG members illustrated by the initial findings of a working group on the importance of project management within a local authority; and
- the experiences of NCG members featuring ‘five-minute factsheets’, giving a brief overview of NCG members’ large-scale developments, experience and the lessons they have learned from the process so far.
