Councils to be given an incentive to meet deadlines

Colin Espiner reports that councils which are slow in processing consent applications will be given an incentive to respond to customers in a more timely manner. Late processing will soon incur a fine if Nick Smith has his way.  This is a fine idea and should help make councils more responsive to applicants who know only too well that when it comes to renovations and construction projects time is money.
