Petition Reform proposed changes to planning system and remove top-down housing targets
We want a planning system that works for people. Local authorities and residents know how many and what type of houses they need, where they need them and what infrastructure they require. We want the Government to agree a fair system with communities, based on actual need not a formula.
Homes should be built where needed not allocated by a one size fits all formula.
Development should be led by plans set by local authorities with their residents.
Developers should be required to build out agreed planning permissions.
Developer’s shouldn’t be able to avoid obligation due to viability.
Developer infrastructure contributions should be paid at an earlier stage.
Development should include locally set affordable home quotas.
The five-year land supply standard should be scrapped.
