"Planning minister Nick Boles: New developments are 'quite likely to be ugly'" (Have you seen Hammerson's new Brent Cross Cinema?)

"The planning minister has admitted that new developments are 'quite likely to be ugly' and will put pressure on the local infrastructure, with few obvious benefits to communities."

Link to Daily Telegraph

"Nick Boles made the comments at a meeting with some of the country’s biggest property developers on Wednesday, as he privately promised that planning laws would be liberalised to create a building boom. [sic]

"He said:
“We’ve long believed that the fundamental problem is that nobody really has an incentive not to object to a new development.

It’s quite likely to be ugly, it will definitely add to the pressure on the road, the pressure on the doctor’s surgery and everything else, and it doesn’t ever seem to result in a cut in your council tax or in any other financial benefit.”
