CPA Submission: Lords Select Committee for the Built Environment
In September 2021 we submitted a response to the House of Lords Built Environment Committee, which launched an inquiry on the demand for new housing in the UK and how barriers to meeting this demand can be overcome.
In summary we proposed that the inquiry should recommend the following actions:
- A review of the national housing target, with Census 2021 data as the trigger;
- That Government policy should deliver for housing need, not just demand, and for renters as well as home buyers, while investment in social housing must be prioritised;
- The need for far greater and more meaningful community participation, not less, across the planning system, so that outcomes are improved for everyone. And that genuine community participation should be a core component of all future planning policy, including mandatory referendums for Local Plans.

CPA Submission: Ox-Cam ARC Spatial Framework Consultation
In October 2021 we submitted a response to the consultation, “Creating a vision for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc”.
We said that any future framework produced for the area needs to be evidence-led and community-driven, and must minimise damage to the environment.
If this consultation is to be genuine, with outcomes not already pre-decided, as indications in press coverage in recent years would lead one to believe, it must also consider seriously two further alternatives. One of those being a 'do-nothing' strategy of no spatial framework for the Arc, and the other, a spatial framework that delivers only local housing need and associated infrastructure.
