Planning changes

Recommended Posts

So what does "giving local people more powers to get good projects done faster”  actually mean?

 

If it means give people more say, it will just give existing residents more chance to object to new housing near them?

 

It is just typical of this government, a wooly, fluffy meaningless sound bite to make it sound like they are doing something, but with no substance about what or how they are actually changing anything for the better.

It’s four years since we started our first build

I can’t believe how planning has changed in such a short time 

You can no longer pick the phone up and speak to planners 

If you want to ask a question you put it in writing along with a fee of 

£150-200

And, in the context of planning,  what does '   sustainability   ' mean now ? COVID means less trips to the bus stop: no need to walk to some of the shops. Many fewer car journeys. 

That term - in this context -  is in the process of being re-defined.

I do remember something like this a few years ago, giving local gov more power locally regarding planning rather than central gov dictation. Down here people don’t want new builds but complain there is not enough housing. Go figure.
