Right to Regenerate: Reform of the Right to Contest (inefficient use of public sector land)

Deadline 13th March 2021

The government wants to empower people to challenge the inefficient use of public sector land in their communities, and to bring it into better economic use, including to provide new homes. The government is consulting on the effectiveness of these requests as it considers reforms to make the process more efficient and more transparent.

This consultation paper sets out a number of questions relating to the effectiveness of Strand 2 (land owned by a local authority or certain other public bodies) of the Right to Contest under the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 operated by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
