Grosvenor Britain & Ireland (GBI) has conducted the largest ever canvassing of public trust in placemaking in the UK.
As well as measuring levels of public distrust in placemaking and large-scale development, the research also unpicks the drivers of this lack of trust.
We are now seeking to bring together a range of representatives from the development industry, public sector and civic society to help us act to restore trust in the planning system.

When it comes to planning for large-scale development just 2% of the public trust developers and only 7% trust local authorities.
