If you were Secretary of State tomorrow...?
May 15, 2020 Season 1 Episode 2
Tom Martin, Quatro PR, Ghislaine Halpenny, BPF, Sam Stafford Barratt David Wilson

Three willing guests – Tom Martin, Quatro PR, Ghislaine Halpenny, BPF and Sam Stafford Barratt David Wilson - joined us for this, the second in our series of Barton Willmore Uncut. In Conversation. 

Held the day after the Rt Hon Robert Jenrick’s COVID-19 Planning Update announcements, there was no better time to put ourselves in his shoes and mull over the moves made and what we might add to the cache of measures, on a more systemic, long term basis. 

It’s safe to say enthusiasm for the role varied hugely across the group, but suggestions were both bold and practical including:

  • Better use of the powers already held
  • Greater measures to support commercial property 
  • Abolition of the green belt
  • Enhanced funding to Local Government
  • A greater, more prominent role for Homes England than seen to date

There was even a call for attitudinal change towards the colouring pencils of planning….a sentiment many of our planners will no doubt get on board with!
