TDC votes to protect planning objectors' rights

A motion calling on the Government to protect the rights of people to object to planning applications has been unanimously passed by Tendring District councillors.

The motion stated that “planning works best when developers and local communities work together to shape local areas” – and called on the Government “to protect the rights of all communities to object to individual planning applications”. It was tabled in response to concerns about proposed planning reforms which could potentially remove the right for people to object to applications – but which may now have been put on hold by the new Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government,  Michael Gove.
