New laws silence the say of local people
Controversial new developments will be bulldozed through warn Conservatives Iain Dale, Conservative Candidate for North Norfolk has this evening criticised new laws coming into effect that are transferring powers over planning from local councils to regional bureaucrats. Speaking to a Policy Forum in Stalham, Iain Dale warned that this could allow controversial new developments to be dumped in North Norfolk, irrespective of the wishes of local people.  The Government announced on 17 June the timetable for the implementation of the new Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act. The legislation will transfer planning powers to the self-styled ‘Eastern Region regional assembly’, allowing it to create a ‘Regional Spatial Strategy’ for housebuilding, transport and planning that will be binding on local councils (and in turn county councils’ Structure Plans will be abolished).

Iain Dale said, “The Labour Government hasn’t listened to the overwhelming public concern about its changes to the planning process. It is taking power from local councillors in North Norfolk who are answerable to local people via the ballot box, and transferring responsibility to distant and unaccountable regional bureaucrats in Cambridge.  The Government’s real agenda is to bypass the say of local people in North Norfolk, and bulldoze through controversial developments like Tesco’s in Fakenham and Sheringham or the controversial planned housing estate between Cromer and East Runton.  Regional planning is too distant ever to be properly accountable and legitimate. Conservatives would scrap these unnecessary and expensive tiers of bureaucracy and hand the powers back to local communities.”
