CABE and the the RIBA have broadly welcomed proposed changes outlined in the planning Green Paper this week. Both issued their official responses to the reforms after the consultation period closed last Thursday. However, the RIBA did oppose plans to reduce the lifetime of planning consents from five to three years and to cut the time allowed for appeal from six to three months.

It also criticised the complexity of the range of planning fees proposed. CABE opposed the business planning zones and criticised the lack of commitment to improving planning skills of local councillors.
