Latest News: Planning decisions: Community Right of Appeal


At present, only developers can appeal planning decisions. Civic Voice   (Click here to see the website of Civic Voice)   is encouraging you to sign a petition to ‘give communities back the right to decide where houses are built.’ This petition calls for a parliamentary debate on the Government’s Housing and Planning policy over building on greenfield land and seeks community right of appeal on planning decisions and the removal of the presumption in favour of sustainable development.

The petition needs 10,000 signatures to receive a government response. If it receives 100,000 signatures, the petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.

Please notify your family and friends and ask them to consider signing. The petition is here:
