Task Group for Planning Aid England

The Task Group for Planning Aid England (PAE) in the South West, commissioned a research project in Autumn 2017 with the MSc Planning students at the University of Plymouth as part of their Research Methods module (led by Dr Stephen Essex). The aim of the research was to examine the awareness of PAE services in the South West and to identify the types of outreach work that would best support local communities and groups in the region. PAE provides free and independent professional planning advice, which is delivered by around 300 volunteers across the country. The Task Group saw this research project as a real chance to prioritise the work of PAE on projects which were likely to support communities and groups in the South West over the next few years as well as to build a relationship with one of the region’s key Planning Schools.
