Politics and housing

DCLG has just published a new house building consultation. The Government proposes to incentivise Councils by letting them increase planning application fees in return for permitting more developments and it also wants Councils to ‘work together’ across borders to help avoid building on the green belt. The proposals create opportunities for large scale developers with the capacity to work with more than one Local Authority and pay higher fees to those Councils approving more applications.
