Urge Wiltshire Council to Condemn the Planning Reforms

We are calling for Wiltshire Council to condemn the planning reforms and to pressure the Government to scrap the proposals.

The proposed changes will allow automatic approval for developments in 'growth' zones and 'permission in principle' for proposals in 'renewal' zones. This threatens years of work by Neighbourhood Plans.

The Government is taking control of planning away from democratically elected planning authorities such as Wiltshire Council and placing it in the hands of developers.

The changes risk driving down standards and puts rural areas at risk of arbitrary development.

Let's reform planning by making sure that communities have more of a say over what happens in their area, while treating the climate, nature and housing emergencies as the emergencies that they are.
