PlaceShapers have welcomed the Government’s consultation on a new “Right to Build” and the opportunity offered by the custom-build model to add to the delivery of much needed new homes across the country.
Chair Tony Stacey said: “Custom-build can be a game-changer. It is one of very few housing policies where there is all-party support. The UK lags behind most developed countries in its use of custom-build, and I would love to see this change.
"This is not for everyone. Our members respond to local housing markets and work very closely with the strategic housing authorities. Where the figures stack up and councils are behind it, many PlaceShapers will want to play a central role promoting the model and helping to accelerate new supply.”
The response says:
Our submission represents the collective response from PlaceShapers. Individually, some of our members may submit their own response.
