RTPI responds to Government legislation programme

30 June 2009

Responding to the the Government's draft legislative programme for 2009/10 the RTPI:

  • Welcomes the intention to maintain the housing programme, which will benefit communities and the development industry, and provide an incentive to local planning authorities to maintain their forward planning and development management programmes.
  • Hopes to be given a clearer understanding of how much of this new money, or if not where it is coming from; and through what agencies it will be delivered.
  • Welcomes the measures to improve our carbon performance - but the carbon capture and storage plants must go through the IPC or the planning system.
  • Welcomes Infrastructure UK, but believe that it can only be effective if it has or develops a National Spatial Planning Framework within which to coordinate and encourage the delivery of infrastructure.
