Planning reforms in England: local wildlife under threat | The Wildlife Trusts
Somerset Wildlife Trust is doing its bit with the other county organisations to alert the public to the implications of this Government proposed change to the way our planning system works.
I think we need to be very careful about making it so much easier for planning applications to get the go ahead. Planning applications have always been heavily weighted in favour of the developers because they have the financial strength to employ professional people to present their case in the best possible light and then pay for legal help to follow it through.How can you or I stand against such power. We need to support the Wildlife Trusts on this.
