Pickles You were Wrong all Along – The Return of Strategic Planning in the Budget

Red Book

Strategic planning in the South East – To ensure that this investment is well‑targeted and helps grow the economy, the government will support more strategic and zonal planning approaches through housing deals in the South East, where housing need is at its most acute.
As a first step, the government has agreed a housing deal with Oxfordshire, part of its wider strategic investment in the Cambridge‑Milton Keynes‑Oxford corridor. Oxfordshire has agreed to bring forward for adoption a joint statutory spatial plan and commit to a stretching target of 100,000 homes in the county by 2031, in return for a package of government support over the next five years, including £30 million a year for infrastructure and further support for affordable housing and local capacity. The government is also continuing housing deal negotiations with Greater Manchester, the West Midlands, Leeds and the West of England.
