Planning Update- “Fixing our broken housing market”
Posted on 09 March 2017

A recent Government White Paper has been produced outlining the Governments proposals for “Fixing our broken housing market” of which the paper has been titled.

It is clear within this paper that a shift in thinking is emerging, an attitude more encouraging towards development in the countryside.

This shift opens up opportunities for land owners with potential development sites becoming more attractive due to changing policy as well as those with existing buildings prime for residential conversion.

Within applications submitted by Vickers and Barrass we are finding that a more favourable outlook towards development is emerging within our local planning authorities both within and outside of designated areas such as our local North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We have significant experience dealing with planning matters and would be happy to offer our advice and services to achieve your assets full potential.
