England is still becoming acquainted with a heavily deregulated planning system. Since 2010, when planning legislation was first relaxed to accommodate housing growth, there have been complaints from both the private and public sector that the system is unsustainable.
The Raynsford Review seeks to provide practical and comprehensive policy guidance to overcome these issues in a way that is mutually beneficial to all stakeholders.
We have set three aims for the project:
- Engage constructively with politicians and council officers, communities, housing providers, developers, consultants and academics — all those interested in the built environment — about how we can deliver better placemaking through a fairer and more effective planning system.
- Set out a positive agenda following the outcomes of the general election and planning hiatus.
- Set out a new vision for planning in England and rebuild trust in the planning process by communicating with the public as well as professionals.
