The government is asking all those involved in building homes, including developers, planners and trade associations, to identify ‘ineffective rules and heavyhanded enforcement that stop them building homes’. The key starting points for its new Cutting Red Tape review are based on the Task Force’s priorities, roads and infrastructure rules for new housing developments, environmental requirements, particularly EU rules, and rules affecting utilities. The government is also keen to look at the CDM Regulations changes, as well as any EU rules being implemented too strictly. The review will look at the way the law is enforced, as well as whether the rules themselves are proportionate and fit for purpose and the responses will lead to the government taking concrete steps to remove burdens on business.
