The Independent: "Planning reforms would not promote growth, says report"

Link to web site

"A report commissioned by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), the National Trust, and the RSPB claims there is no evidence that planning has large effects on productivity or employment, and that the draft National Planning Policy Framework is unlikely to have much effect on growth.

The report, prepared by Vivid Economics, also found that, although there have been a few studies of the costs of the planning system, the resulting claims have been overstated – and very little has been done to measure the benefits that good planning delivers.
