The Government has published a white paper on reform of public services. This addresses the full range of public services, and includes planning. The paper refers to the proposed community rights to buy and build, and to neighbourhood planning, as examples of planned reform in this context. It also promises consultation "with local authorities and the wider public sector about how to go further in opening up locally commissioned services in: […] planning:". The Government intends to follow this "over the next few months by a wide-ranging discussion with individuals, communities, public sector staff, providers and others with an interest in how public services are delivered." In November "the Government will set out how departments will take forward ideas to implement open public services over the rest of this Parliament in line with the principles and policies set out in this White Paper, including proposals for legislation. […] From April 2012, departments will publish regular progress reports, setting out the steps that have been taken to open public services."
