To plan or not to plan

The saga of our District Council’s local plan continues.  Yet another delay as attempts are made to put the wheels back on a flawed process.  Are they deliberately making such a mess of things in the hope the government will step in and take control?

It sounds far-fetched, but they couldn’t really make more of a hash of things if they tried! By the time we get a new local plan, if we ever do, it will be 14 years since the process started. Meanwhile there is no proper framework in place to evaluate the plans for new housing being put forward by developers. It’s a farce.
