Is planning in London out of control?

Peter Wynne Rees, professor of places & city planning, UCL Faculty of the Built Environment, former City of London Corporation’s planning officer 1985-2014, writes in the Guardian:

“A residential development in Central London is now likely to make four to six times more profit than an office scheme. Without planning control, much-needed offices have given way to piles of “safe-deposit boxes” rising across the capital.”
