Welcome to the Planning Commision

Comprised of planning experts, councillors, and representatives from industry, Labour has created the Commission to shape Labour’s planning policy for the next general election, paying particular regard to local plan making and putting place making and local communities at the heart of Labour’s planning agenda.

“The Commission will help design a planning system fit for not only the 21st century but the 22nd century, and will examine the role local people have in shaping the future of their area and planning in advance for new infrastructure; for jobs; for access to schools; new transport; greater access to green spaces, and the need to enhance the built and natural environment.”

Roberta Blackman-Woods MP, Shadow Minister for Planning & Local Government


“Local Government Planning Departments are increasingly stretched, dealing will more applications, and struggling with a deregulated, poorly functioning planning system. This Commission will help Labour design a planning system that works for communities, and helps deliver the kind of development that communities want and need for the future.”

Andrew Gwynne MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government
