The Planning White Paper and affordable housing: The views of social landlords


The Affordable Housing Commission’s latest survey of what stock owning councils and housing associations think about the Planning White Paper shows that an overwhelming number disagree with the government’s claim that the proposed reforms will help build the homes the country needs and, furthermore, result in fewer social rented homes.

The White Paper highlights the views on whether planning reforms will be effective in building the homes the country needs, whether the reforms lead to fewer social rented homes, and whether now is the right time for planning reforms.
