November 2007 Edit

  • Gap remains between Government's rhetoric and reality on planning reform, November 27 [1] ‘We hope that MPs will use the debates on the Bill to champion democracy, accountability and sustainable development, and reject proposals that sideline communities and the environment.’ Owen Espley. topic
  • Planning – the wrong radical reform, Society needs A Living Landscape - not more roads, November 27 [2] topic
  • Campaign for Better Transport reacts with dismay to Planning Reform Bill, November 27 [3] "The Government has thumbed its nose at deep concerns raised over the Planning White Paper, including those from lawyers and former planning Ministers, as well as those representing community groups. This is all about Gordon Brown wanting to bulldoze through a third Heathrow runway, build more roads and construct a new generation of coal and nuclear power plants. Airport expansion and motorway widening will significantly increase C02 .... The Government will put itself on a collision course with local communities, who may be left with no option but to resort to peaceful direct action, if it pushes through projects that threaten people’s environment and quality of life in the interests of economic development." Jason Torrance. topic

  • Politicians are too terrified to devolve power to the people, The Guardian, November 14 [9] topic
