What a radical Conservative government could do (Financial Times)

CPS pamphlet “Pink Planning – diluting the red tape” by Keith Boyfield and Daniel Greenberg was mentioned in a Tim Harford Financial Times article on a radical Conservative manifesto, Friday 1 May 2015.

“Given that housing benefit is to be abolished by this radical government, there is an urgent need to build large numbers of houses. This would boost the economy and reduce the price of new homes. One possibility, proposed by the Centre for Policy Studies, is the establishment of “pink zones” with lighter planning regulation (the colour represents a dilution of red tape). In these zones, substantial increases in housing could be achieved by a coalition of local authorities, community groups and developers.”
