London Property Alliance calls for planning flexibility

The London Property Alliance, a consortium of London developers and landlords, has urged Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick to announce a two-year extension to existing planning permissions, to ensure that permissions don’t expire as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown. The group has also called for the reintroduction of flexibilities, used during the global financial crisis, that allow developers to renegotiate section 106 obligations such as the provision of affordable housing.
