Now live: Street Vote Development Orders Consultation

03rd January 2024

First introduced in the Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023, the government has announced a consultation on a new route to planning permission in the form of ‘street vote development orders’.

What are street vote development orders?

Street vote development orders are a tool that will give residents the ability to propose development on their street and vote on whether the development should be given planning permission.

As a result, this will give residents the opportunity to shape the development on their street and be more proactive in the planning process.

The introduction of the street vote development orders will support the government’s long-term plan for housing and through working with local communities, it will facilitate housing delivery and growth across England.

During the consultation period, interested parties can submit comments on the operation of street vote development orders. The feedback gathered will then inform the content of regulations using new powers in the Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023.

When will the consultation close?

Feedback should be submitted before the consultation closes at 23:59 on 2 February 2024.
