  • SHW thought leadership – planning perspective on general election

  • 13 April 2015
  • The elections in May are creating some murmurs under the surface, so let’s have a closer look at what we COULD expect post-election. Starting firstly with the Conservatives. They have so far chosen not to specify a target for the number of homes they would deliver if re-elected. However, at the party's conference last year, a key pledge was a commitment to improve buying powers for first-time buyers. David Cameron unveiled the Starter Homes initiative, which aims to create 100,000 new homes for first-time buyers under the age of 40. The homes are to be 20 per cent cheaper than usual. The Conservatives are also likely to retain a plan-led system (which has been in existence since the Planning Act 1947), with locally set housing targets staying in place, with a continued pressure on councils to meet this requirement and with a continued emphasis on Neighbourhood Planning which has been popular with may Parish Council’s across the country.
