RIBA reports on Ruth Reed’s evidence to the Neighbourhood Planning Bill committee

On Tuesday Ruth Reed appeared at the Neighbourhood Planning Bill committee in Westminster. Ruth was speaking in her capacity as RIBA Planning Group Chair and Past President of the RIBA.

Ruth Reed told MPs scrutinising the Neighbourhood Planning Bill that local planning authorities’ support for neighbourhood planning groups should extend beyond technical planning assistance. It should include some elements of design support, such as preparation of design codes, to give expression to the kind of development they want to see and make the process more real for them.
