"The local authorities, mainly in rural parts of the country, are facing 'special measures' introduced under the Government’s controversial planning reforms that will allow developers to bypass their planning departments.

"Instead, the decisions will be taken directly in Whitehall by planning inspectors, in a move which countryside campaigners claimed will reduce the opportunity for local people to have a say about major projects, such as housing developments and wind farms in their area.

"... The district councils under threat are Horsham district council, in West Sussex, Fylde in Lancashire and Cherwell in Oxfordshire, all of which have large areas of protected green belt land, Enfield and Barnet boroughs in London and Daventry district, Northants."
