Stop Tory planning changes

Liberal Democrats have condemned plans by the Government to take away the rights of residents to have a say on new housing developments.

The changes mean developers would could go ahead with new housing schemes, without providing extra facilities and services - or local people getting the chance to object.

Decisions on new developments and setting planning rules will be taken away from Bournemouth and decided by civil servants.

Jon Nicholas said: “This is another example of the Conservative Government being out of touch - and failing to listen to the concerns of people in Bournemouth.” 

Residents - not Westminster -  should have the final say

The Lib Dems are opposing these changes. They believe the proposals will put green space under threat - and mean fewer  of the more affordable housing or facilities that Bournemouth needs.
