Refuse permission for poor design, says Raab
Developers should have to compensate local authorities in some way if they don’t build what was agreed at planning, the housing minister has said.
Dominic Raab said he wants councils to have “teeth” so they can seek “redress” if agreements are broken.
And he wants poor design to be a reason to refuse planning permission.
He was speaking at the government’s Design Quality Conference yesterday at which architects, planners and developers discussed how to ensure housing is well designed and doesn’t fall victim to NIMBYs.
