Planning Food Cities

Sustain has launched an online toolkit 'Planning Food Cities' to help communities use the planning system to support community food growing. The toolkit aims to demystify planning so that more community food growers get involved in plan making.

The toolkit follows publication of 'Planning sustainable cities for community food growing' which has guidance for planners on writing planning policies.
