Housing and Planning 2013
Building's Housing and Planning Whitepaper is the indispensable guide to the state of the market for the UK's housebuilders and residential developers in the wake of the government latest reforms to the planning policy environment.
The information, uncovered by Building's team of award-winning journalists, makes a vital workflow tool for housebuilders, giving data and insight into the minds of the people who have the most power to frustrate their business – the planners.
This report includes a range of must-see information for housebuilders to plan their business, including exclusive in-depth data on the planning performance and housing delivery record of every local authority in the country – telling you exactly the easiest (and hardest) places to get a planning permission.
Written following communities secretary Eric Pickles' wide-ranging reform package announced in September, this analysis includes an in-depth qualitative survey of at least 15 planning heads from UK planning authorities on how they are approaching the government's reform package.
In addition it includes survey results of over 350 residential developers of all kinds, conducted by Building magazine, on the state of the market and their key challenges in 2013.
