Consultation description

An effective planning system plays an important role in supporting growth – promoting and enabling the homes, jobs and facilities that communities need, and minimising uncertainty and delay for those proposing or affected by development.

This consultation paper seeks views on measures to streamline the planning application process by simplifying the requirements for design and access statements, and improving the validation stage and requirements around local authority decisions notices.
