Sunday Telegraph: "Coalition's push for localism is undermined by planning inspectors"

Link to Sunday Telegraph

"The Coalition's pledge to give local communities more control over development in their area is being undermined by Government inspectors who are telling councils to allow more house building. 

"Ben Cowell, director of external affairs at the National Trust, said:
"Even in the midst of a public consultation on planning, and before people have had a chance to say what they think, the Government's proposed reforms are sending out a clear message to local plan makers and decision takers: they aren't really in the driving seat after all, and that the planning system should be used as a tool to 'proactively drive' development, and promote short-term economic gain above all else."
