My name is David Knight. As part of my PhD research Making Planning Popular at the Royal College of Art, I am researching the relationship between the planning system and the general public in the United Kingdom.
^Have you sought/gained consent for an extension or a new building? Have you fought to protect or create a community asset or historic building? Have you opposed or supported someone else's planning application? Have you ever engaged with planning policy or your local planning department?^
I need your stories, however vitriolic, banal or celebratory.

Your contributions are hugely valued and will be used to explore design possibilities for a better connection between the planning system and the general public – thank you.
