Coun­cils to be forced to map out hous­ing plans

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Business -

The Gov­ern­ment has set out a new way to force coun­cils to bet­ter mea­sure the need for new homes and grant more plan­ning per­mis­sions in a small but sig­nif­i­cant change in pol­icy. Each lo­cal au­thor­ity will be forced to use pro­jec­tions of house­hold growth to map out how many homes need to be built there. Cur­rently only 41pc of them have five-year hous­ing plans in place.
