Despite the good job done by many planning authorities, increasing housing demand is leading to further planning delays and an escalation of land price, writes a former chair of the New Homes Environmental Group in The Times (p23).

Seven major cities have told Town and County Planning Association that they are likely to run out of land between 2006 and 2011, Andrew Tait points out.

He advocates the setting up of an independent Housing Land Review Body. 'This might help promote a higher standard of deabte in local councils; it would also make it easier for government to overturn decisions where a council has been too influenced by the desire to pass the buck.'
