Our beloved Government is thinking of changing the Planning System. By and large property developers love the proposals, and groups like the Campaign to Protect Rural England and the National Trust are against them. That tells me a lot.
The National Trust have an online petition and plenty of background information, posters etc. so pop over and have a look.
For decades England’s planning system has protected much loved places from harmful development – and steered development to the places where it’s needed. If you care about preserving the places important to you, make your voice heard before October 12th.
