We firmly believe new legislation and fresh momentum is required to aid the nation’s economic recovery post COVID-19, and some measures previously thought to be ‘no go areas’ must now be embraced openly.
Our Planning & Development teams across the country have been working remotely since lockdown and have been able to observe, at close quarters, how the planning system has adapted, or is adapting, to the changed circumstances.
While we applaud our industry for its flexibility and willingness to meet new challenges inflicted by COVID-19, we also recognise that the Government should take immediate action to aid processes.
While we were pleased to see the Government announce new measures on Wednesday 17 June, including the extension of planning permission deadlines, we still believe they need to go further. Click here to view our thoughts.
