Excerpt from The Times:

Sam Bowman, from the Adam Smith Institute, a think-tank, cautioned that house prices in the capital were "out of control" and argued that the planning system was to blame. "This is a disaster. The housing market is out of control, particularly in London, making housing increasingly unaffordable for many people, particularly the poor and young," he said. The planning system "makes it inordinately difficult for new construction to take place to allow supply to meet demand," he added.
