  • analyse basic clashes that may arise between the different planning rules (plans, regulations, plans/draft plans, plans/regulations, subdivision permits/plans and regulations etc.)
  • identify the main procedural constraints in granting permits (stakeholders, impact assessments, public inquiries, procedural implications of  submitting proposed modifications while the permit is being considered etc.) and being able to simplify a draft permit proposal to cut down on certain procedural constraints
  • identify the main breaches in planning rules (situations which are at risk of creating a breach) and their consequences for the architect and the project manager (e.g. interruption of building work, criminal sanctions and restoration etc.)
  • understand certain links between town planning policy and other administrative policies (historic buildings and sites, environmental permits).
