Commenting on the Government’s announcement today of plans to streamline planning rules for businesses in order to encourage development and stimulate economic growth, Alexander Ehmann, Head of Regulation at the Institute of Directors, said:
“The IoD welcomes a renewed focus on planning deregulation as a means of stimulating economic growth. It remains to be seen whether proposals will be far reaching enough to deliver the sort of stimulus the building industry needs.
“Deregulation is one of the key ‘building-blocks’ of the Government’s plans to foster economic growth. It is central to supporting private sector investment.”
