Planning minister's in pact with developers ("Sainsbury's, Grosvenor Estates, Quintain Estates, Land Securities") over reforms

"Greg Clark, the planning minister, privately has urged property developers to lobby David Cameron, amid concerns that his planning reforms will be blocked, according to a leaked email seen by The Telegraph."

"A leaked email will add to growing fears that the minister has become too close to the property industry, and is working alongside developers to force through reforms, which establish a 'presumption in favour of sustainable development'. 

"Developers who were sent the email include Sue Willcox, head of planning at Sainsbury's; Niall Tipping from Grosvenor Estates; Nigel Hawkey, head of planning at Quintain Estates; and Emma Cariaga, head of strategic projects at Land Securities.

"Disclosure of the message comes after The Telegraph revealed that the Conservatives had accepted millions of pounds from developers – and a special club had been set up that allowed developers to effectively buy places at meetings with ministers and senior Tories."
