RTPI signs joint letter to housing minister calling for tighter PDR controls

The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has joined forces with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to call on the government to impose tighter controls on permitted development rights (PDRs).

In a joint letter, the institutes highlight the importance of delivering good quality, well-placed and sustainable homes that the public and the planet need. They urge the government to take their concerns over PDRs seriously and bear in mind that addressing the housing affordability crisis is not purely about numbers.
