What housing crisis?

Our MD Gus noticed this twitter thread a couple of weeks ago which brought up interesting conversations around planning and our collective need to deliver housing.

Some were sympathetic to the planners’ plight.

While others understood how frustrating things can be from the architects’ side.

And it seems like even going straight to the top doesn’t seem to work.

Ultimately, this response sums up how many of us feel.

You can read the whole conversation here.

What do you think? Have you had similar frustrations with getting planning? Or are you on the other side? Let us know in the comments below!
