Planning for the Future White Paper

13 Mar 2020

Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP outlined a series of proposals to reform the planning system in a long anticipated Government planning White Paper, published on 12 March. Among the new measures are greater flexibility for increasing Over Station Development (OSD) and a new planning fees structure. It also sets out proposals for automatic rebates for successful planning appeals.

We will be reviewing the White Paper in due course. If you have any comments on it please do get in touch at
