    Why aren't we building more homes?

    The New Housing Pipeline Report prepared by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) and Glenigan in April 2016 shows some encouraging trends - the number of residential homes approved during the final quarter of 2015 was 20% up on both the third quarter and a year ago.  This brought the overall number of new homes granted planning permission in 2015 to 281,000, representing a 5% rise on the previous year.

    While this is positive news, it is clear that we are still falling short of the annual requirement of 220 – 250,000 new homes being delivered on the ground.  In 2015 the total number of new homes registered was just 156,000.  While we can’t make a direct comparison between the number of homes granted planning permission and those delivered in any single year, as consents tend to take longer than a year to implement, we do need to understand why we are still failing to build enough homes in the UK.

    Residential Roundup - A Developer's Guide

    It’s time to roundup the hottest topics in the wonderful world of residential development. Just what has caused the most ruckus in recent government policy releases I hear you say? Well allow me to review.

    In January 2016 an amendment suggested at the third reading of the Housing and Planning Bill, by planning minister Brandon Lewis, would allow planning applications to be processed by ‘alternative providers’ if it receives Royal Ascent. These alternative providers would be assessed and pre-qualified by the government or local authority (LA), meeting certain rigorous criterion, to be capable of setting up shop as third party planning application processors. The notion behind such an idea is to alleviate the administrative pressure currently experienced by LA planners, therefore freeing up resources for determining planning applications faster within stifled public sector planning departments.
