Aldermore's Commercial Mortgages Managing Director Rob Lankey said:
"I welcome the news today that Planning Minister Nick Boles has launched a pilot of a new streamlined planning guidance website. For years, one of the most fundamental issues in the house building industry has been the red tape and bureaucracy surrounding the planning process. There is a chronic shortage of housing and streamlining the planning process is key to increasing the number of houses being built.
"Although there is still a long way to go, this move will be welcomed by the house building industry and is a step in the right direction."
