This DTI funded Partners In Innovation project has brought together those tasked with promoting and controlling development and those who deliver development to consider a practical set of measures that could be requested and delivered on different types of sites. We have explored the planning mechanisms available to ensure the measures are adopted in future development and have produced a training package for planners, RDAs, local authorities and developers covering the measures they should be promoting/adopting and the actions they can take to make sure they are implemented.
