New Gov Planning Consultation: Get your views heard

The Dept for Communities & Local Government has published a new 8-week consultation asking for your comments on:

  • Its proposed approach to calculating local housing needs
  • Statement of common ground
  • Planning for a mix of housing needs
  • Neighbourhood planning
  • Approach to viability assessment
  • Planning fees

The housing White Paper, Fixing our Broken Housing Market,  set out proposals to tackle the housing challenge the country faces. It also stated that further consultation on specific issues would follow.

This new consultation therefore seeks views on a number of proposed changes to planning policy and legislation.    This consultation is open to everyone.  The Government are keen to hear from a wide range of interested parties from across the public and private sectors, as well as from the general public.  If you have any question about the consultation please email: planningpolicyconsultation@communities.gsi.gov.uk

Deadline for response: 9th November 2017

Consultation responses should be submitted by online survey:
