Planning study
This scenario applies where professional planning consultants are commissioned by a local authority or landowner to produce recommendations on future development options in a relatively short period of time.

The conventional approach would be for the consultants to prepare a report based entirely on their past experience and researching available literature.

In the scenario shown here, the consultants also include a consultation process which has to be tightly timetabled to suit their clientıs timescale. This ensures that the consultantsı proposals are based on up-to-date knowledge of local peopleıs views and that local people begin to become involved in the development process.
