Planning shapes our cities, towns and villages. It helps to nurture vibrant and thriving communities.

National and local planning work together to make sure that development is good for people and the environment. The Planning Help website can help you to play your part, and make your voice heard. 

The town and country planning system shapes new building all over the country. It can protect the countryside from sprawl, and it gives everyone a chance to have their say. There is just one planning system in England but it operates on different levels. 

The Planning Help website provides information on the different levels of planning, you can find out more about National Planning, Sub-national Planning, Local Planning, Neighbourhood Planning and Planning Applications.
