FOI request: Design Skills and Resources in Local Authorities
'Place Alliance', 'Urban Design Group' and 'Design Council' are gathering information on urban design skills / resources within local planning authorities nationally, and how they have changed since our last survey in 2017. At a time when Government is prioritising the delivery of high-quality design through the planning system, this survey will help us to understand if local planning authorities are in a position to deliver on those aspirations.
This request is being made under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to gather a reliable and consistent source of data from across the country. I very much look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.
Please provide the information by filling in the online survey you can find here:
It should take no more than ten minutes to complete by someone in possession of the necessary data.
For your convenience, I have attached a PDF of with all the questions.
Your questionnaire falls outside the remit of the Freedom of Information Act as you are not requesting recorded information.
However, I have forwarded your questionnaire to our Planning Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) to respond direct.
