Planning expert comments on plans to ‘auction planning permission’ / by rachel

Roger Tustain, Director at international architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan, said: “From my experience landowners will want to extract maximum value and often invest time and money in pursuing higher value schemes through the planning process.

“Are they going to be altruistic enough to fund the public purse through selling their land to the council cheaply or are they going to sit on their asset and optimise value through the normal planning process - even though it may take longer?

“My money is on the latter.”
