The Department for Communities and Local Government's chief planner Steve Quartermain will take questions on proposed changes to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) at the Planning for Housing conference in London in October.
A Gloucestershire council has refused a planning application for 215 homes, despite planning officers recommending the scheme be approved.
The communities secretary has approved plans for a mixed-use development on an 11.75-hectare site in Colchester in Essex, after concluding that the scheme's impact on the vitality and viability of the town centre would not be 'severe'.
There is 'clear support' for new national planning rules to boost the emerging build-to-rent sector but disagreement over the government's definition of 'affordable private rent', a consultation response document has said.
The Court of Appeal has rejected a generalised presumption in favour of sustainable development (PIFSD) in its ruling on an inspector's decision to approve Barwood Strategic Land's plans for up to 150 new homes in Staffordshire.
It is going to be a very busy summer for local authorities as the government moves forward with implementing the Housing White Paper.
A key Court of Appeal judgment makes clear that the National Planning Policy Framework's presumption in favour of sustainable development should not apply in instances where a local council has an up-to-date plan, in a ruling that experts suggest should "put to bed" planning disputes over the scope of the presumption.
Sajid Javid will keep the housing delivery bandwagon rolling but Gavin Barwell's new posting at the heart of government may be even more influential in the long run, experts speculate.
This landmark judgement should not be viewed by councils as a way to resist housing applications, says Simon Coop.
Government proposals to strengthen build to rent should provide certainty for councils and developers, says Kathryn Hampton.
With air pollution receiving greater attention, planners need to give increasing consideration to the issue, says Justine Thornton QC.
