Local authority development – effect of planning permission
In the housing white paper the government consulted on a proposal (question 5) to allow all local authorities to dispose of land with the benefit of planning permission they have granted themselves. This is a summary of the responses received and sets out the government’s response.
The government’s response to other proposals in the white paper will be published in due course.
As part of the housing white paper, we are also consulting on changes to planning policy and legislation in relation to planning for housing, sustainable development and the environment.
We are keen to hear from a wide range of interested parties from across the public and private sectors, as well as from the general public.
The consultation, including details of how to respond, can be found in the white paper. You can respond online below.
