Blog & Forums
Here at PAS we think it's good to communicate. To enable this, we have a PAS discussion forum and the PAS blog.
We provide high-quality help, advice, support and training on planning and service delivery to councils. We help local government officers and councillors stay effective and up to date. We have a ‘sector-led' improvement approach, where local authorities help each other to continuously improve.
