Review about reducing the regulatory burden imposed on developers after they have secured the grant of planning permission.
The ‘Penfold review of non-planning consents’ was commissioned by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS). The review was charged with the identification of measures to reduce the regulatory burden imposed on developers by the need to obtain additional consents and approvals after they have secured the grant of planning permission for their development proposals. Such requirements cause delay and costs. On occasion, these can render the development concerned non-viable.
