The divisive law also launches 'affordable' homes costing £450,000 in London and paves the way for privatised planning applications.

Is privatised planning really a bad thing? My impression (based on quite limited knowledge) is that current system works against the people and almost any alternative (even if it ends up costing more) may be a better option?

Based on everything else that's been privatised, then yes, it's a very bad thing.

It also kind of misses the point of protecting public interest.

I'd be interested to understand the detail, you never know it might not be as bad as it sounds.

But I were cynical I would guess the whole point was to evade public interest. And perhaps something to do with the fact that 8 builders build 50% of our housing, and seem to be driving government policy.
