    “Britain is still building fewer new homes per 100,000 people than comparable countries”

    This stat is interesting, but what would be more interesting is how Britian’s backlog of approved but undeveloped planning permissions compares with those same countries? Do other countries have a similar backlog of undeveloped permissions, do they also have a problem of permission being so ‘difficult’ to get that grants persistently outstrip actual development?

    Do you think we should attack the backlog of undeveloped planning permissions rather than the Nimbys?
