On 6 August 2020, the government published a consultation on reforms to the planning system. The proposals are intended to streamline process, cut red tape, harness technology and protect green space to deliver high-quality, sustainable communities.
The white paper, Planning for the future, focusses on local community agreement, with communities consulted from the very beginning of the planning process. The approach has been informed by discussions with the planning and development sectors, and by research and reports published by the Royal Town Planning Institute, Centre for Cities and Policy Exchange.
