More worrying changes coming down the track, with a Planning Policy paper expected next month to set out a reform of the entire system. The government will launch a planning Policy Paper in July setting out our plan for comprehensive reform of England’s seven-decade old planning system, to introduce a new approach that works better for our modern economy and society.(?)
The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) warned that deregulation would not help address the housing shortage because it is “already far too easy to build poor-quality homes”. CPRE’s Tom Fyans said: “Transferring decision-making power from local councils and communities and handing them to developers is the exact opposite of building back better.”
Lots of private vested interests (and political party funding) fuelling all this of course.
How can we make sure this doesn't become the nightmare it could be , with planning control moved to central govt and NO control at a local level. This must NOT happen
