Build to Rent Consultation

Date: 2/5/2017

POS welcomes the focus on delivering housing, and is generally supportive of the proposals set out in this consultation. Although we would highlight the importance of planning for employment, community uses and infrastructure as well as housing and that these are appropriately funded. Placemaking should be at the heart of all residential proposals.

POS does not see the current planning system as a barrier to Build to Rent, it may be useful to clarify how Build to Rent should be assessed when compared to other housing types. However, POS would strongly argue that local housing needs should be supported at a local level, and this should be part of the assessment of a Build to Rent scheme.
