Housing Minister, Christopher Pincher, questioned on the future of planning system

4 December 2020

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee will take evidence from Housing Minister, Christopher Pincher MP, on Monday 7 December as part of its inquiry into the future of the planning system in England.

The session will examine the Government’s proposals for reforming the planning system in England and the key themes investigated over the course of the inquiry.

This is likely to include questions on how effectively the proposed reforms support the Government’s wider building strategy, including its target to build 300,000 new homes a year, as well as ensuring high quality construction that is fit for purpose. It will also examine how well the new proposals protect existing buildings or localities, and provide mechanisms for local engagement in the planning system.

  • Simon Gallagher, Director of Planning, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
