Planning review calls for sweeping reform The Raynsford Review of Planning, led by former housing minister Nick Raynsford, has released its final report, Planning 2020. The report, commissioned by the Town and Country Planning Association, concludes that “the current planning system in England does not work effectively in the long-term public interest of communities or the nation.” The review makes a number of recommendations: establishing a “betterment tax” allowing local authorities to acquire land at its use value through compulsory purchase; communities to have the right to appeal planning decisions that contravene agreed local development plans; partial redistribution of capital gains tax and stamp duty for regeneration; organising planning into four tiers, with locally led development prioritized but with development corporations taking precedence in areas with specific needs; a national code for health, safety and wellbeing standards; a legal duty for local authorities to plan high-quality affordable homes; and the formation of a government department to allow national and local engagement on planning decisions.
