Planning: new measures to increase delivery

Spotlight on Planning.

Savills assess whether new planning policy will lead to increased housing delivery.

The proposed revisions to the NPPF are the biggest shake up to the planning system since 2012. The aim of the revisions is to deliver more residential consents where housing need is most acute, and to make local authorities more accountable for meeting the targets set in plans.

Are these changes enough to push housing delivery closer to the government’s 300,000 target? Does planning policy align with the wider economic strategy, and is enough being done to unlock sites in the areas with the greatest housing need?

Savills assess how far the proposed revisions to the NPPF are likely to result in increased housing delivery and show where policy needs to develop further if it is to ensure the planning system is effectively tackling the housing crisis.
