From Sheila Peacock, secretary, BTN: I spent an afternoon reading the government’s proposal for reforming the English planning laws, which are at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/launch-of-planning-for-the-future-consultation-to-reform-the-planning-system

https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/planning-for-the-future

Deadline is 11:45 pm on 29th October (that will be GMT since the clocks go
back the previous Saturday – so you get an extra hour to ponder it – !!)

There are some good and some alarming suggestions in this document, and the implications for house-building, infrastructure and local democracy in Basingstoke and Deane are profound.  I shan’t try to colour your thoughts with mine, but urge every supporter of BTN to have a look and make a comment.
