Accelerated Planning Manifesto from BPF

Over a period of around 10 years, the planning system has seen a drop in spending of 55% per person. The British Property Federation (BPF) believe that politicians should be treating planning as a priority and that improvements to the system are necessary if they are to meet their housing promises. Covering 8 key areas, the BPF has issued its Accelerated Planning Manifesto to the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government along with local authorities and are intent on creating a better funded and transparent planning system. Melanie Leech CBE, BPF Chief Executive acknowledges there is no single solution for creating an accelerated planning system, but says that funding must be a priority.
