Radical planning reforms to come - Planning for the Future 

The government issues a consultation paper on Planning (6th August 2020)

These are the most radical set of proposals since 1945, and it is going to be very interesting to see what comes from the 12 week consultation.

The white paper is full of ambition to create a system that will deliver beauty and high standards as well as a high volume of houses being built, quickly. The consultation paper stresses the need to reform how planning decisions are made, as well as what they deliver, and they hope to encourage much more involvement by the community in drawing up Local Plans. 

These reforms if implemented, will have a significant imapct in Derbyshire. We would really appreciate you taking the time to read through the White Paper and respond to the questions.
