Stonewater’s response to Local Government Association (LGA) calls for the Government to bring forward its Housing White Paper commitment

"We support the LGA’s calls for the Government to bring forward its Housing White Paper commitment for nationally-set planning fees to be increased, and for the Government to commit to testing a fair and transparent scheme of local fee setting.

A national fee increase should be reasonable in amount and Stonewater would want assurances that additional funds generated would be used specifically to help councils speed up their processing of planning applications so that urgently-needed homes can be built more quickly."
