LAIS 1396 - Housing White Paper

The government White Paper 'Fixing our broken housing market' was published on 7 February 2017 and this is a briefing paper on the main points set out in it.

One of the key aspects of the proposals, of major interest to local councils, is the shift to more strategic local planning at principal authority level with neighbourhood plans and development plan documents becoming predominant for dealing with the detail at a local level. There is also an emphasis on building affordable housing.

A consultation is now running for 12 weeks and will close on 2 May 2017. All responses should be received by no later than 23:45 on 2 May 2017.
