Inexpensive Progress?

A framework for assessing the costs and benefis of planning reform

Inexpensive progress Inexpensive progress

This study, commissioned jointly with the National Trust and the RSPB, finds that the Government's proposed reforms are likely to have little or no effect on growth and could even undermine public wellbeing. The report shows that very little has been done to measure the benefits that good planning delivers, and concludes that there is no evidence that the draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) would have any positive effect on growth or employment in the short run.
