Housing Market White Paper is published

Posted: Mar 8, 2017

The Housing White Paper “Fixing our broken housing market” sets out the Government’s plans to reform the housing market and boost the supply of new homes.

Some of the main items include the following:

A tougher approach to developers who get planning permissions, then don’t build

Action plan requirement for local planning authorities where delivery falls below 95 percent of annual housing requirement 

Opportunity for local planning authorities to have their housing land supply agreed on an annual basis and fixed for a one-year period  

Increase of 20 per cent in planning fees (these are set nationally) 

Further increase of 20 per cent for local planning authorities meeting their delivery targets.
