Planning Aid for London entered a three-year partnership with the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) in June 2020. The majority of our current work programme is delivered through this partnership. The partnership receives funding from Trust for London. It runs from June 2020 to May 2023, 

We are grateful to the TCPA and to Trust for London for their support.
