Planning user group for agents

Planning user group for agents

If you regularly make planning applications in Bristol, you can join our planning user group.

You’ll get to meet planning managers and officers to talk about planning in Bristol. Topics could include:

  • changes to national planning policy
  • planning process and practice changes
  • a review of how planning works in Bristol

The planning user group also visits sites to look at and review finished development.

If you have a concern about the way a specific application was handled, you won’t be able to discuss this at the user group.

To join the group, email
