The Conservative Government want to change the laws of the land, quite literally... To remove your right to object to building proposals on land within your communities - Liberal Democrats are fighting to keep your voice in the process!
Under the Conservative Government's plans building proposals will be steamrolled into local communities without the input of local communities and the full scrutiny from Local Government.
This new system would see decisions made by Central Government Officers that have never been to our local area.
The truth of the matter is there are over 1 million houses approved for building in the UK that are sat on hold - developers sit on the land to spike house prices. Councils are not to blame here, they provide an important planning service that gives local residents a clear open process which they can raise their objections.
Do you think decisions about building proposals should be made locally, or by some far-flung Central Government Officer?

"I object to the Conservative Government's whitepaper, because it would deny local resident's the right to have a say on building proposals in their area."
