    Autumn Statement and Spending Review: Highlights for planning and development

    Following on from our July blog based on the Summer Budget, the yellow pine and brass handled Budget Box (i.e. the red briefcase) was rolled out yet again for yesterday’s Spending Review and Autumn Statement, both of which were set out to Parliament. Here, NJL provides an update on key points which affect planning, construction and other associated industries.

    It is considered that the current planning system is restricted by bureaucracy which unnecessarily prevents implementable permissions being delivered quickly, subsequently suppressing the housebuilding industry. The Home Builders Federation (HBF) this week expressed their views on the matter, ‘the time taken to get permissions to the stage where work can actually start on site is still taking for too long’.
