National Federation of Builders

1 min read

The NFB welcomes the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) announcement that consented sites, with an expiry date between 23 March 2020 and 31 December 2020 will see their consent extended to 1 April 2021.

Richard Beresford, chief executive of the National Federation of Builders (NFB), said: “This request was put to MHCLG and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) a month ago and once again, the Government has listened to industry. Extending expiring planning permissions will secure jobs, give the supply chain certainty and ensure businesses still have a pipeline of work to deliver. It’s great news.”
