Planners plan. Politicians adopt

Statistics this week that may or may not be related....

The Conservative Home website features the results of a survey last week that asked Conservative members to prioritise various policies ahead of the budget.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, on a scale of 1 to 10 the allocation of more land for building scored 5.12 and is firmly in the 'low priority' category.

In other news, Local Plan coverage remains poor. Nick Boles confirms here that still only three quarters of LPAs have published a Local Plan and only 'over half' have adopted one.

A reminder that whilst planners prepare a plan, it's the politicians that adopt it.
