Response to the consultation on proposed changes to the Planning System

Posted on Nov 06, 2020

As you may know the Government has published proposals for changes to the Plannning System for which the consultation period ended 30th October.   Instead of making a seperate submission as a single amenity society, the Putney Society Buildings Panel have fed their comments through to London-wide and national organisations; specifically the London Forum and the Civic Voice.   

The proposed changes comprise a change in the way housing targets for regions and individual local authorities are set and comprehensive changes to the planning system set out in the White Paper  "Planning for the Future".    While there are some measures which have support there are important caveats regarding the overall proposals.
