Labour To Scrap Planning Reforms

Recommended Posts

Yes, what exactly are Labour playing at here? Any ideas, anyone?

Is this Labour's "Help to Buy" equivalent? Morons.

Labour have correctly identified that there is a fault line in Conservative support between those who favour development (of all kinds) to generate prosperity, and those who want to retain a pleasant environment (pleasant for them, that is). They are trying to induce more discord between these two opposing views. Anyway, Labour's recipe for prosperity doesn't need new building, just more credit and higher state payroll and benefits. Well, it worked for them last time......

Another way of looking at it is they'll pop the build to let/speculate bubble before it starts to inflate....

Sorry this is Labour isn't it? silly me.

Well, the top two in Labour were in Brown's bunker so it fits to a degree, but it's pretty daft to wander into the housing debate, having watched Osborne being torn apart over HTB, and announce a poolicy who's only motivation is political opportunusm.

I wonder what treatment the media will give Miliband over this....

Desperately trying to get back into power.

Where is the party/people who actually want to run the country for the benefit of the people here ?

Its called democracy UK style. Your problem is that democracy UK style delivers exactly what you are asking for, it's just that you are not part of the majority who benefit. Of course the benefit is only short term as it has been for the past 35 years and will continue to be for the next 35. It's what the Germans don't do.

It does seem odd, on the one hand Balls says labour will build 100,000 new homes, on the other hand they say they'll scrap planning reforms which would have allowed new homes to be built. Definitely sounds like politics to me.

I do kinda hate the British - hate building on countryside when actually their own houses were built on countryside. I say hold a vote to bulldoze all villages and stately homes.

This newspaper’s Hands Off Our Land campaign last year led to the Government watering down changes in the NPPF, although it still contained a bias in favour of sustainable development.

The 52-page framework, which replaced more than 1,400 pages of guidance, was opposed by rural campaigners. Under the NPPF, councils in England have to publish and adopt local plans which set out where development can take place for the next five years.

Sir Simon Jenkins, chairman of the National Trust, warned in March that the countryside was in a state of “warfare” because local residents were having to fight developments.

Labour wants to embark on a huge house-building programme if it wins the 2015 general election.
