Petition: Protect local power over planning
The Conservative government’s new planning laws will remove safety and size regulations, allow developers to build what they like with no oversight, and make it even harder for London to build the social and affordable homes we need. More info here…
And to do this, they’re taking away local control by removing councils’ and residents’ ability to object to or alter anything about a specific development.
Once an area’s been zoned by government, that’s it – developers can build cramped, unaffordable, dangerous or polluting new slums anywhere they like, with no input from you or your representatives.
We need Westminster Council to stand up and tell the government how much damage these plans will do. The Conservatives promised us better housing – not a new generation of unsafe slums and an end to affordable housing.
