What steps he is taking to reform planning rules in England.
19 April 2021
We are transforming the planning system, through recently announced changes and our proposals for ambitious long-term reforms.
Our White Paper, published in August 2020, proposed comprehensive reform of the planning system.
We have also published changes to calculating local housing need, to enable more homes to come forward where we need them most, and a National Model Design Code, which will drive up the quality of new development.
