Be First Planning Development Management Team

Be First Regeneration

The efficiency and professionalism with which the team has handled planning applications has improved the lives of LBBD’s residents and created a sense of momentum which has been integral to the borough’s success as a growth area. This is even more remarkable given that the team comprises only 15 members, where the average size of such teams in London is approximately 40. The team has established the borough as a place where the planning process enables the delivery of high-quality, sustainable development, rather than constrains it, and has set a benchmark for how a modern development management service can operate.
