What is not to like about the Taylor Review? One thing Only

Well done, why was it not commissioned as soon as if no tbefore the NPPF was finalised, a quite necessary delay.

One minor issue – Manual for Streets took years and years to consolidate and fight for should not be cast aside lightly.  Before its introduction getting good planning layouts approved was a nightmare..  I note there were no street/urban design experts on the panel.  It should be consolidated into a single Housing and Street Design manual (including the stupidly privitised MoS 2) covering all design advice (including from CABE such as BFL).

  1. I agree in general Andrew. But the scale of the task shouldn’t be underestimated. And MfS/MfS2 aren’t just about housing development (or indeed just new streets).

    My guess is that MfS will be with us for a while to come.
