Planning rules might be tweaked very slightly

Planning rule book is torn up

Lord Taylor was appointed to review thousands of pages of planning guidance which underlies the NPPF [National Planning Policy Framework]. His review found that existing guidance was “not fit for purpose” and that the “historic accumulation of out-of-date, contradictory and unmanageable material must be brought to an end”. There are 7,000 pages of guidance, much of it contradictory and dating from the 1960s. Lord Taylor conceded that the changes to the guidance would be “entirely neutral”, although he admitted “there will be some arguments about what they should say”, adding “what goes into it may or may not increase or reduce protection”.

  • This is a bunch of nonsense. What guidance does he refer to? 6000 pages? It doesn’t exist. This is all just made up nonsense.

    Clearly, the problem is caused by these very bed wetters who infact caused the problem by gutting our economy and manufacturing with rediculously high taxes, and stupidly low interest rates. The problem is that we are broke, but these sicko’s refuse to let us have any of our money.

    Just like the bully at school who steals a packet of sweets and eats it infront of you whilst they punch you in the nose. And you know full well that those spotty nosed bully’s are the one’s now running your life.
