Comparison of the planning systems in the four UK countries

Synopsis: This paper describes and compares aspects of the current land use planning systems operating in the four UK countries. In particular, given the changes introduced by the UK Coalition Government (2010-2015) and by the devolved administrations, it compares the extent to which the four planning systems now differ from each other. It also describes further changes for each country that are in the pipeline. This is an update of a previous version of this paper, of the same title, published in June 2013.
