Permission in principle should not take away normal controls and considerations

Date: 18/12/2015

The Housing and Planning Bill includes the measure to draw up a brownfield register and grant permission in principle for housing on those sites.

Mike Kiely, Chair of the POS Board, told Planning magazine the permission in principle measure is simply about "converting an allocation into something a little bit firmer" to give banks more confidence for financing a project than an outline planning permission would bring. Kiely argued it does not have to take power away from local authorities. "But we'll be pressuring the government to make sure (it) doesn't take away those controls and considerations."
