The Planning Act came into force at the end of 2008, marking the culmination of a series of wide-ranging reforms which have dramatically changed the way planners work. "Town planning 2009" is the essential guide to the new planning system. It explains the practical implications of the key areas of change: application fees; permitted development rights; standard planning applications; design and access statements; and the new Planning Act 2008. Thoroughly practical, with checklists, illustrations and sample forms, the book explains: how the planning system works; the legislative framework; the policy framework; what is permitted development; what developments require permission; the process of applying for planning permission; how applications are processed and determined; how to challenge and appeal against decisions; the process for dealing with unauthorised developments; the powers of local planning authorities; and the rights of individuals who are faced with action by the local planning authority.

It also provides guidance on other relevant regulatory regimes, including conservation area consent, listed building consent, advertisement consent, environmental impact assessment and applications for lawful development certificates. This book is written for anyone involved in planning at any level in the public or the private sectors. Whatever your professional background or technical experience, it is essential reading.
