Recent Coalition Government Consultation on Planning reforms:

Although national government says that it supports local empowerment, it is removing many of the opportunities to shape development locally. The continued expansion of permitted development, one of the reforms included in the latest consultation, will mean that residents and the Local Planning Authority have little say in an increasing amount of future development.

Did any of the NPN groups/ members respond to the consultation?
Do the NPN members think that we should be doing so or it is a waste of time, do you think?
