A two-stage planning process

This idea seeks to combine some existing processes in a more formal way; pre-application meetings, outline planning applications and full planning applications.

Looking at the wider context and use of BIM

Early coordination in terms of local networks, building control and long term impacts of the building would be beneficial to our built environment.

Implementing lessons learned abroad

This idea proposes using our existing knowledge of foreign planning policy precedents to fully implement the lessons learned abroad.
