Localism Bill - Not at Brent Cross Cricklewood for the next twenty years?

Key points in government proposals:

Local people and communities will have real power and a bigger say over their area, through a new right to challenge to take over services.

They will also have a new right to bid to buy local assets, such as libraries, pubs and shops.

Neighbourhood Planning

The Bill will introduce a new right for communities to shape their local areas. Neighbourhood plans will enable communities to permit development – in full or in outline – without the need for planning applications.

Community Right to Build

This measure will give local communities the power to take forward development in their area without the need to apply for planning permission, subject to meeting certain safeguards and securing 50 per cent support of the community through a referendum.

It will be for communities to identify suitable land, sources of finance and secure support for their proposals, but we will put in place arrangements to provide help and guidance

Local authorities will also have to publish up-to-date information direct to the public on what planning documents they are preparing, while central government powers to direct changes will be more limited.
