The problem with planning

In essence it’s this. Peruse to page 6 where you will see the chairman of a small-medium sized house builder reveal the firm spends more on planning and planning fees than it does on bricks.

If this is a bad thing depends on whether you think this country needs more housing or not, which itself depends on whether or nor you own one. I will merely note that most of Parliament appears to own dozens of houses (brought with our money) and so has most to lose if housing supply increases and causes a drop in house prices.
