Last day of consultation on new planning rules – here’s our response

The Government’s consultation on its proposed changes to the planning system closes today.

Surrey Green Party submitted a response, which you can download from the link below.

We are concerned that many aspects of the Draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) will have a negative impact on Surrey residents, and on the wider environment.

We are particularly concerned about its ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’ – when ‘sustainable’ is not defined.  TheFramework appears to be driven by economic, rather than planning, considerations, with the interests of developers placed above those of local communities.

If you haven’t yet had your say, you can do so quickly and easily via the National Trust website – please visit the site to sign the petition or send an email to your MP.
