FAQ - How can online-only work in the planning sector?

The Planning Inspectorate has not currently issued any specific guidance around consultations. You should look at statements of involvement to see if you have made any commitments to engage/consult in certain ways and make sure this aligns with your engagement/consultation plan. You should also review consultation preparation around planned events, stakeholder mapping/analysis, equalities analysis and characteristics and keep an audit trail of how you are engaging with stakeholders and make note of where you weren’t successful, and where stakeholders disengage from the process. Make sure to check that whatever method you use, groups identified as being disproportionately impacted are reached. We have put articles about different methods of engaging digitally on the wiki for you to check out.
