Information Exchanges will vary depending on the selected procurement route and Building Contract.
There are four main procurement options, they are as follows:
1. Traditional method Design and Build.
2. Management Contracting.

Procurement, the programme and (town) planning activities vary widely from project to project and resolving this conundrum has been one of the biggest challenges in the creation of the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. To overcome this variability, the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 allows users to generate their own bespoke practice or project specific Plan of Work.
Planning permission is the legal process of determining whether proposed developmentsshould be permitted. Responsibility for planning lies with local planning authorities (usually the planning department of the district or borough council). The legislation, policy and guidance that underpins planning in England can be found on the government‘s National Planning Practice Guidance website.
Other than permitted developments, (which are considered to have insignificant impact), all developments require planning permission. The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 sets out details for developments that might be permitted without requiring a planning application.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) decides national planning policy for England and this is set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.
