Planning Policy 


As strategy specialists, Small Fish has significant and valuable experience in developing local planning policies.  We have developed policies for a number of Local Plans and Neighbourhood Plans from Core Strategy policies to criteria based development management policies. We have developed a rigorous method for developing plansand policies that ensure that plans are in place to fully address local issues and challenges. This includes:

  • Evidence base production so that strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats are understood and quantified, providing a firm and robust basis for your strategy

  • Sustainable strategy development for planning covering aims, objectives, performance indicators and targets

  • Policy development, with a focus on maximising value for money and supporting the wider policy agenda, such as the economy, health and climate change

  • Action plans for delivering strategies to ensure the strategy does not sit on a shelf collecting dust

  • Detailed area strategies and area action plans to provide more local detail.
