Developer’s Charter will see communities side-lined – Mike Amesbury

Mike Amesbury MP, Shadow Housing and Planning Minister, responding to the Government announcement on planning system reforms, said:

“This is a Developer’s Charter that will see communities side-lined in decisions and denied vital funding for building schools, clinics and community infrastructure.

“These proposals will only serve to blight communities with a new wave of slum housing – the Government’s own independent report even warned of the poor quality of housing built outside the planning system.

“This Government needs to build the high-quality, genuinely affordable, environmentally sustainable housing that this country desperately needs.”
