Planning and Local Representation — 14 Jul 2021 at 15:38
The majority of MPs voted for greater public involvement in the creation of development plans, for greater regulation of permitted development, and to make permission for large housing schemes conditional on them starting within two years.
The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That leave be given to bring in a Bill
- to give people who have made representations about development plans the right to participate in associated examination hearings;
- to require public consultation on development proposals;
- to grant local authorities power to apply local design standards for permitted development and to refuse permitted development proposals that would be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of an individual or community;
- to make planning permission for major housing schemes subject to associated works starting within two years;
- and for connected purposes.
