Planning Inspectorate

The government recently announced a number of new measures in the Growth and Infrastructure Bill to reduce confusing and overlapping red tape that delays and discourages business investment, new infrastructure and job creation.

Mr Boles said:

New planning measures will put the Planning Inspectorate centre stage in ensuring we have a swift and effective planning system that helps boost local economic growth.

By expanding permitted development rights, cutting red tape and streamlining the planning process we can save householders money and help businesses create jobs and compete.

During his first visit to the Inspectorate in Bristol on Thursday, the minister discussed the work of planning inspectors with Inspectorate Chief Executive Sir Michael Pitt and toured the National Infrastructure Division and Planning Appeals Division.
