Local Councils and Community Groups
apT recognises the importance of the community involvement and has significant experience to assist local Town and Parish Councils, or community groups.
The Localism Act 2011 offers local communities direct power to develop a shared vison for their neighbourhood; giving an opportunity to write their own policies, rather than just comment on those written for them. This gives communities control on the location of homes, shops and offices, the design of them and what infrastructure is required to support growth.
Neighbourhood planning is not a legal requirement, but gives communities a powerful tool to shape a shared vision. apT is committed to assisting neighbourhoods to deliver their strategies, offering a service that has a wealth of experience with community stakeholders and Local Councils in all service areas.
We tailor all our service to meet the needs of our clients and coordinate all aspects of enquiries in-house, helping neighbourhoods deliver a strong vision.
