Planning Petition

Stop the Changes to the Planning System

The Government has drawn up changes to the planning system that will take away the right of local people and their elected councillors to comment and decide on planning applications in their area.

Right now residents have several opportunities to comment on planning proposals at different stages of the process and decisions are made by elected local councillors.

Ministers want to take decision-making powers away from local communities and local councils, and hand them over to developers and Whitehall officials.

Our democratic ability to shape the future of where we live could be lost with the stroke of a pen.

We must resist this, but we don't have long.
