Yet more planning madness
28/07/2008 17:53:00

Another depressing example of unelected Government officials overturning the decision of elected local councillors and the wishes of local residents - the Planning Inspectorate has allowed a developer to replace a detached house in Sefton Road in Ashburton ward with a block of ten flats.

My colleague Steve O'Connell, the London Assembly member for Croydon and Sutton, and I are collecting a petition to have planning decisions taken by local councillors. Councillors aren’t perfect but at least if you disagree with the decisions they make you can vote them out at the next election. If you would like to support our campaign you can sign the petition here.
