The Planning Officers Society was formed in April 1997 by the amalgamation of the former County Planning Officers Society, District Planning Officers Society and the Metropolitan Planning Officers Society. With the formation of a single Local Government Association it was decided by the constituent societies that a single voice for local authority planning practitioners would be the most effective way of pursuing good and effective planning practice within local government.On 10 March 2011 POS became a Charity (Registered Number 1140770 20-22 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4 JS) with the purpose of advancing the education of the public in planning law, planning policy and public sector planning practice. It fulfils this purpose though a programme of policy and project work, events and education, publication and dissemination of good practice and electronic update bulletins.
