The Government is reportedly planning to overhaul controversial planning system changes following criticism from senior Tories including former prime minister Theresa May.
The proposed algorithm aims to decide where to build 300,000 new homes by allocating an annual-house building target in each area of England based on demand, regional affordability and population growth.
It would have led to big increases in building in rural areas but was described as “ill-conceived” by Mrs May, who warned it “flies in the face” of the Conservatives’ levelling-up agenda.
The system is now being “rebalanced” to prioritise construction of homes in urban areas, The Sunday Telegraph reports.
I note the two things Carrie got into the Sundays, this and new National Parks/AONBs.
