Saving the Planning Act

>> Help fund our Judicial Review at

Our right to have a say over what is built near us is under threat.  The Government is gunning for our precious planning system which, since 1947, has enshrined local democratic decision making and our right to object.

The planning system does need reform, but not by tearing up its core principles – that people’s health, the local environment, and access to the services they need – is more important than whatever makes the most money for developers.

Rights : Community : Action is working to defend the planning system and to ensure we all keep our right to be heard.
