A while back, Sam Stafford published a conversation with Clive Betts, MP for Sheffield South East, about the then Housing, Communities & Local Government Committee’s recently-published report on the future of the planning system in England.

Fast-forward a few years and the now Levelling Up, Housing & Communities Committee, which Clive still chairs, has published another report on reforms to national planning policy, in which he has kindly agreed to record another online conversation with Sam about it.

Their wide-ranging, whistle-stop conversation takes in, amongst the other issues covered by the Committee’s inquiry, the politics of the NPPF consultation, housing targets, a ‘Plan for England’, Green Belt, the Infrastructure Levy and local authority resources.
