Responding to the announcement that all new housing developments must meet local standards of beauty, quality and design, Cllr David Renard, housing spokesperson for the LGA, said:

“We look forward to seeing the details of the draft national design code and the new Office for Place. We want to continue to work with the Government to get these proposals right.

“Councils need to be at the forefront of a locally determined planning system which meets the housing needs and aspirations of their communities, and support proposals that go some way to facilitating that.

“Along with government, we want to ensure that homes are built to a high standard, with the necessary infrastructure to create sustainable, resilient places, and ensure that affordable housing is provided.”
