Details

This research concluded that briefs are a potentially useful tool for improving the quality and the consistency of advice provided to developers, the effeciency of the planning process and the quality of the built environment. It also found that the standard of briefs is very mixed and that some are prepared unnecessarily. The Guide was prepared in response to these findings drawing on past and current practice throughout England and Wales.
