Government Looking to Increase Housing Starts Through New Expedited Approval Panel

New approval process may shorten wait for new housing by up to several years.

The inner cabinet on housing issues will be asked to approve a plan on Monday for the establishment of a new board empowered to expedite approval of new housing. The plan is an effort to implement many of the recommendations by a team (the so-called 90-Day Team) that developed proposals for expanding housing stocks.
