Councils Lack Resources to Implement Self-Build Homes Requirements

Date: 27/3/2015

A private members' bill is set to become law and will mean a new role for local authorities in planning for self-build homes.

Mike Kiely, Chair of POS, said that the proposed register seemed to be "a bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut". 

kiley added, "The mechanics of actually keeping a register is quite a significant task that's going to absorb resources and, at a time when resources in local government are at a premium because of cuts, you do have to question on a cost-benefit analysis whether this is the thing to do or not."
