Planning For The Future, published today, sets out how we will reform the planning system to realise that vision and make it more efficient, effective and equitable.
Our approach has been informed by discussions with the planning and development sectors, and by research and reports published by leading commentators – including, most recently, reports from the Royal Town Planning Institute, Centre for Cities and Policy Exchange.
As part of this work, we are also extremely grateful to the taskforce of experts who have generously offered their time and expert advice as we have developed our proposals for reform.
The task force is chaired by the Minister of State for Housing, the Rt Hon Chris Pincher and members consist of industry leaders, acting in a personal capacity, and include:
- Christopher Katkowski QC
- Sir Stuart Lipton
- Miles Gibson MCD
- Bridget Rosewell
- Nicholas Boys Smith
- Dr Tim Leunig
