Housing Standards Review Consultation

Date: 14/11/2014

This consultation, associated impact assessment and work undertaken by EC Harris focuses on the costs to developers but does not pick up on the costs facing hard stretched local planning authorities or other indirect costs, such as those raised in the Society's response, regarding meeting increased demand for water from new homes, thus the basis of the impact assessment is flawed.  

Local planning authorities are likely to undertake a local plan review on the basis of adopting national standards on cost grounds and a perverse impact could be that those Councils with plans in preparation could now be delayed pending the outcome of this consultation.
