Making it vup as they go along
Introduce ‘amberfield’: a planning class between green and brown
Local growth is impeded as a result of extensive (2-5 year) battles to bring forward land for development. To attract inward investment to the UK we need to provide certainty to investors and signal where we have a future pipeline of land.
Local authorities utilising local plans, should allocate sites deemed favourable for sustainable development as amberfield. Rather than planning classes of green and brown being inhibitors to development, amberfield would enable development. We ask government to concurrently undertake a national brownfield site review.#
How is this any different to allocating a site within phase I of a local plan for development. Allocation has no necessary connection to its land use classification which is purely a matter of land use (statitical). If they cant anser this question pleae consign the report to the bin.
