The Localisim Bill is to confer powers of general competence on Local Authorities which may help. Whether the skills exist with Members and Officer to take advantage of this will remain to be seen.
I'm not actually talking about Planners by the way. Its some of the others.

"Apparently developers cannot come up with schemes that stack up to the
satisfaction of our Officers, who are all of course highly experienced
in these matters but prefer working in a more socially useful
environment with guaranteed pensions etc etc."

In my experience a lot of people working for planning authorities would love
the Council to have a go at doing historic buildings up itself, but there's
no budget to allow this!
