Regional Building Plans

Asked what the Prime Minister’s reaction was to the court judgment against Eric Pickles’s decision to scrap the regional building plans, the PMS referred to the comments already made by Bob Neill on how this judgment changed very little and how later this month we would be introducing the Localism Bill which would sweep away the controversial Regional Strategies.

Put that scrapping top-down targets would have come in immediately under the existing law but now we would have a delay as we wait for a new law to be introduced, the PMS replied that the Localism Bill would be introduced shortly and we had to focus on building houses in different ways.

Asked how top-down targets stop people from building houses, the PMS said the Government is generally against top-down targets and is for encouraging local people to make local decisions and this applies to housing as well as other local priorities.
