Planning Reform Consultation Response

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) response to the government’s 'Planning Reform: Supporting the High Street and Increasing the Delivery of New Homes' consultation.

The government’s 'Planning Reform: Supporting the High Street and Increasing the Delivery of New Homes' consultation proposes to introduce flexibility to react to local circumstances by allowing employment space to be converted into residential easily.

In its consultation response, the RIBA has warned of the damaging consequences that would result from expanding a policy which since it was established in 2013 has led to a drastic decline in standards across England.

Under the new plans, the volume of development that can go ahead without the proper scrutiny from local authorities would be further increased.
