We need to simplify the planning and development processes to encourage small and medium sized developers, accelerating the pace of development to increase housing supply. We pledge to:
• Simplify planning consents for Brownfield sites.
• Change the funding model to make it easier for councils to borrow from central government to build council houses.
• Accelerate infrastructure grants funding to kick start schemes of marginal viability.
• Change the process for outline planning consent.
• Introduce more flexibility on the size and type of units as part of a development.
• Allow more flexibility in the number of affordable homes within a development scheme.
