Consultation: Street Vote Development Orders

3 January 2024

The government has 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.

SLCC intend to respond to the consultation. The deadline for comments is 2 February 2024. To contribute to SLCC’s response, please send your comments by email to Andrew Towlerton, SLCC National Planning Advisor, [email protected] by Monday 29 January 2024.
