Sign the petition – Don’t deregulate planning

14th September 2020

The government has devised some new plans that could pose a huge risk to the countryside and the communities living and working within it.

Ministers want to take decision-making powers away from communities and local councils, handing it over to housing developers and central powers in Westminster.

Under these new proposals, our ability to shape the future of where we live – a right communities have had for 70 years – could be lost with the stroke of a pen.

We must resist this, but we don’t have long.

Our petition to government

We have to stand firmly against these proposals before they are taken any further.

Sign our petition to call on government to drop them and invest in a planning system that:

  • Puts people and communities first
  • Provides access to countryside for all
  • Delivers affordable homes for those in need
  • Enables the building of zero-carbon homes as soon as possible
  • Empowers councils and gives local people a voice

We need to shift the scales in favour of communities, not developers, and if enough of us stand together, we can make a real difference.

With just a few clicks, you can be part of that.
