“The headlines may pay attention to the extension on Right to Buy and the desire to allow more people to own their own homes, but I particularly welcome and look forward to seeing the proposals around changing the planning laws. New rules that aim to simplify and speed up the planning system are necessary and the announcement to create a statutory register for brownfield land could make the process of identifying suitable land quicker too.
“Housing growth is vital to the economy, but it is important to recognise that if we are able to generate a supply of hundreds of thousands of homes, we need to ensure we review every element of the system from planning to finance for smaller house builders to make sure these targets can ultimately be achieved.”
