... the Prime Minister has set out 3 principles for delivering a smarter state: reform, devolution and efficiency.

In his speech at Leeds he broached the idea of further planning reform/new models for disposing of government land holdings and prompting their rapid development.

"Closing down government offices and releasing government land can help build more homes and spread home ownership" Cameron sugested. "At the moment, we sell off unused government land to developers" he continued;  "but the whole process takes a lot of time. Is it not time to cut out the middleman? Should government not just contract out development on this land and get building on it straight away?"
