Planning Aid England
The government has decided to terminate funding for Planning Aid England when its current contract ends in March 2011. The entire full-time Planning Aid staff have been sent pre-redundancy consultation letters by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
Planning Aid England provides free, independent and professional advice to individuals and community groups who cannot afford to pay professional fees.
It gave more planning advice and organised more community planning activities than ever before, pushing the number of people it helped last year to the highest annual figure ever recorded for the service.
PAE expanded the level of its activities across England and extended its service further by supporting the public to engage with the new national planning policy statements which were published late last year.
More than 34,000 people attended community planning and training events organised by PAE. The service also exceeded its target of handling 4,750 casework inquires by almost three per cent.
