Liaison Board

We value the links we have with practitioners and policy makers across the planning sector. Our Liaison Board provides an important connection to a range of practitioner networks. Liaison Board members act as advocates for the department in their own fields and provide support to the department for its activities and initiatives. They also offer advice, guidance and insights on key developments with a view to enhancing our performance and profile.
