ABSTRACT
The article deals with the implication of local budget cuts in Great Britain for council planning departments. According to Stephen Tapper of the Planning Officers Society, the decimation of planning departments can be attributed to the local authority cutbacks. He notes that some councils are shifting into shared service delivery with neighbouring councils while some are considering outsourcing most or all of the service. The Royal Town Planning Institute stresses the need for councils to consider the benefits and drawbacks of outsourcing.
