Our Planning team constantly monitors the activities of local planning authorities to identify opportunities for clients. This Local Plan Watch highlights latest progress with the new local plans coming forward across our region this Autumn, and some of the strategic planning opportunities arising from the Government’s proposed planning reforms.
The forthcoming change to the Government’s standard methodology for calculating housing need is one such opportunity, with targets set to increase in many parts of our region.
The methodology may be tweaked following consultation, but landowners, promoters and developers should retain a razor sharp focus on this reform to identify new prospects. To assist, our Local Plan Watch highlights the difference in the housing delivery targets arising from the existing and proposed methodology for each local authority area.
Please check out the detail on progress in each county by clicking the locations below. If you wish to explore the opportunities further, please contact our team of local specialists.
