TISonline Planning

This TISonline information stream aims to help those who work with and within local authority town planning and building control services. It is intended to increase the understanding of where the services fit into the broader picture of planning and how to meet wider central government and local community objectives.

TISonline Planning provides guidance on making optimum use of the planning process for financial management. It also addresses relevant issues of immediate importance on an ongoing basis, seeking to share best practice. 

Written and updated by an editorial board of experienced practitioners, it seeks to increase the use of planning resources by organising access in financial terms.

This information stream includes sections on: 

  • policy and legislation
  • funding and budgeting
  • assurance and probity
  • topical issues 
  • links to helpful sources of further information.
