Planning – PINS report rise in post NPPF submissions – but how many will get through?

Planning Resource

In an interview with Planning, Mark Southgate, director of casework and plans at PINS, said the inspectorate received five plans in both March and April, but received 11 in May and expects nine this month.

“There are signs that councils are taking the message of the NPPF, which is very clear: you need an up-to-date plan in place,” he said.

But how many will get through without significant amendment of housing/DTC issues – all but one at examination at the moment will either require withdrawl or major modification to deal with housing underprovision issues?

  1. absolutely agree – underprovision appears to be pretty much universal. This is just going to cause more delays, and those builders/ developers waiting in the wings, ready to stick their necks out and build, are going to have to sit on their hands for another 2 years. The whole process is deeply depressing and frustrating and the economy is suffering as a result.
