In response to further concerns raised during parliamentary consideration of the Housing and Planning Act 2016, the government committed to a ‘review of the planning law and regulations which relate to basement developments’.
This Call for Evidence takes forward this commitment. It seeks evidence on the number of basement developments being taken forward: how these developments are currently dealt with through the planning system; and whether any adverse impacts of such developments could be further mitigated through the planning process.
