In 2019 I was invited to join an academic panel advising the Shadow Planning Minister, who was reviewing Labour's planning policy in the run-up to an anticipated election. This paper was my second contribution to that process. It illustrates one of the key problems described in my earlier paper for the same process (see https://uwe-repository.worktribe.com/output/1493880). It shows how current planning policy, including greenbelt policy in particular, is causing perverse outcomes, and how planning policy could be reformed to prevent this.
