Consultation on Street Vote Development Orders – SLCC Response

7 February 2024

On 22 December 2023, the government announced a consultation on the detailed operation of the street votes development order system.

Street votes are an alternative to traditional forms of planning permission which gives residents of a street the ability to propose development on their street, for example, the addition of an extra storey to properties or the building of affordable housing and, subject to the proposal meeting certain requirements, vote on whether the development should be given planning permission.

The deadline for comments was 2 February 2024 and SLCC’s response to the consultation can be read here.
