PARSOL Standards – next steps?
Those of you in the know will remember that the standards were designed to underpin improvements in planning application processing by standardising elements of application information.
However, that was a while back and time moves on.
As a result we intend to facilitate a review of the standards with a view to finding out “Who is using them/How are they currently being used/If they are effective/Should they be updated and if so how?”
We plan to do this by:
1. Recruiting a review panel to agree a question set for an online survey (e.g LPAs or POS, PAS, Planning Aid, RTPI, CLG, Stat Cons)
2. Run online survey and concurrent discussion
3. Consult on review panel views of the findings
4. Publish and promote the findings as recommended standards
