Successful lobbying by the National Trust

MPs tells government to rewrite its planning reforms

The Government should rewrite its proposals for planning reform, an influential group of MPs said this morning. In particular, the select committee said it should reinstate a policy of ‘brownfield first’ to ensure that brownfield land is used for new developments ahead of countryside. The MPs also called on the Government to amend its contentious proposal in favour of sustainable development, and to put economic growth lower down the order of priorities.

  • Homeowners have the god given right to consume as much housing as they want, regardless of the consequences for everyone else, but god forbid the landless want to house themselves on the remaining land!

  • sibley's b'stard child says:

    Not so Mr G, the only person on here whom consistently places the enviroment above the need for housing is Nickb (and I presume the since-departed Number Cruncher).

    Personally I agree with him but until population growth is curbed then the logical desire is for more housing.
