Hands Off Our Land: Thousands of new homes and wind farms fast-tracked by planners
Christopher Hope and Miriam Sakambet
The Daily Telegraph has learnt that developers have been routinely applying for permission to build using a draft version of the planning regulations. Council officials have also been using the draft National Planning Policy Framework as the basis for future housing developments in their area.
Ministers are expected to make substantial changes to the reforms after a backlash from campaigners.
The final version, which is likely to be published next week, is expected to say that developers must build in town centres before digging up the countryside, and relax the requirement for councils to approve more homes.
