Save our Green and Pleasant Land and abandon the proposed Planning Reforms
The government is consulting on a White Paper to change Planning Laws. It basically carves up the entirety of England into 3 zones. One will get automatic development rights. The second has presumption of development. Only the conservation and aonb areas etc will have methods of protection.
1.This White Paper says it will give community more input. We believe this is not true, and that the proposals are an assault on local democracy.
2. The paper says it is to help with housing shortages. We believe this is not true and that proposals are to help developers, as housing shortages are not to do with planning laws and there are a million unbuilt houses with permissions.
3. We believe these reforms will result in destruction of our countryside and urban green spaces, harm biodiversity.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
