February 13, 2017 By BHW New Build
The Government recognises that many more houses need to be built in England, of the type people want to live in, in the places they want to live. They will require all areas to have up-to-date plans in place and ensure that communities are comfortable with how new homes look and then they will need to ensure that homes are built quickly once planning permissions are granted.
For private developers, the Government is offering a planning framework that is more supportive of higher levels of development, with quicker and more effective processing and determination of planning applications, and is exploring an improved approach to developer contributions. In line with the industrial strategy, the aim is to boost productivity, innovation, sustainability and skills by encouraging modern methods of construction in house building.
The Government will encourage greater diversity of homebuilders, by partnering with smaller and medium-sized builders and contractors in the Accelerated Construction programme, and helping small and medium-sized builders access the loan finance they need. In return, the Government expects developers to build more homes, to engage with communities and promote the benefits of development, to focus on design and quality, and to build homes swiftly where permission is granted.
