It sets out a number of questions relating to the effectiveness of Strand 2 (land owned by a local authority or certain other public bodies) of the Right to Contest under the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 operated by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. Its aim is to strengthen the right and make it simpler to use as the new ‘Right to Regenerate’.

This will help to shape a reform of the Right to Contest, in order to encourage the right to be utilised more effectively and more widely to stimulate regeneration and the more productive use of land.

This consultation by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government runs from 16 January until 13 March 2021.
