Planning reform timetable announced

The timetable for delivering reform of the planning system under the new Planning Act has been made clear in parliament. There will be a draft circular on planning obligations (the to-be-renumbered Section 106 agreements) this autumn, covering negotiations only that will replace Circular 1/97. The aim is to publish a final circular in early 2005, accompanied by a Good Practice Guide on negotiations. The new arrangements should be in force early next year.
