    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.

    In a session replete with drama and haranguing over U-turns, there were several highlights of particular importance to us in the planning and development world. So in this guide, we'll summarise some of the key points and offer our thoughts on what the government's plans might mean for us in these sectors in the coming years.

    Housing, Planning, Infrastructure and Devolution headlines from the Conservative Party Conference 4th-7th October

    In case you were not aware, from Sunday to Wednesday of this week (4th to 7th of October), just over ten miles up the road from our Heald Green office, Manchester was looking a little bluer than normal and for once this was not purely down to rain or an impassioned representation from Manchester City Football Club!  In a packed agenda, the Conservative Party Conference 2015 took residency at Manchester Central, a venue dubbed as ‘an award winning, globally renowned venue in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant cities’.

    Policy pledges have been batted about left, right and centre at this year's Conservative Party Conference and with housing and the economy high up on the agenda, there's been a wealth of discussions that could have wide-ranging ramifications for planning and development in the UK.
