Spring Statement: Builders face rules on housing diversity to improve build-out rates
The government has outlined several key planning changes it will make including regulating the diversity of houses built on large sites and ensuring new homes are more energy efficient.

 

 

Planning reforms were highlighted as part of the Spring Statement published by HM Treasury today, alongside the announcement of £3bn towards affordable housing.

Within the coming months, the government pledged to act in four key areas. It will:

 

 

 

  • Publish a Green Paper setting out proposals on how greater capacity and capability, performance management and procedural improvements can accelerate the end-to-end planning process.

 

  • Outline a Future Homes Standard, to be introduced by 2025, future-proofing new build homes with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency. This is part of the mission to at least halve the energy use of new buildings by 2030.
