You don't have to wait untill everything is in place to get a sound plan

Date: 22/4/2016

Planning magazine reports that an inspector has found Birmingham City Council's development plan sound. despite it proposing a housing requirement that is more than a third below the city's overall need.

Catriona Riddell, the POS Strategic Planning Subject Specialist, suggested to a reporter that the inspector was taking a pragmatic view "that it was better to have a plan which could start addressing the housing shortfall, rather than having to wait endlessly till everything was in place".
