#8: Planning for the Future - White Paper on a New Planning System for England

This episode provides a summary of the main proposals in the UK government White Paper, Planning for the Future, which sets out a new planning system for England.

I discuss the move away from a discretionary planning system to one based on zoning, how the new system intends to promote design quality and delivering more housing and the changing role of technology in planning.
