What steps he is taking to reform the planning system in England.
20 July 2020
Our seven-decade old planning system is in need of an overhaul, and we will shortly be publishing a planning Policy Paper in the summer setting out our proposals for comprehensive reform.
These reforms will deliver more high-quality, well-designed homes, and beautiful and greener communities for people to live in.
Alongside this we continue to create new planning freedoms to support the high street and create new homes – including new Permitted Development Rights and Use Class Order reform.
