Bill Passes. Will Your Plans Pass?

The Localism Bill passed its final parliamentary stage with acceptance of all Commons amendments by the Lords.

Signing of the bills will take place 15th November.

In the final debate, Greg Clark offered comments on the highly contentious ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’ passage.

He says: “I shall conclude by saying a little about the definition of sustainable development. I think it is obvious to every Member who has participated in these debates that our intention is to reflect, through guidance, a stronger and more expansive definition. I have made it quite clear that the 2005 strategy offers a basis that has been commended to us by many respondents to the consultation. It is extant, and I have no difficulty with it. We may be able to go further in some respects, but it is clear and reflects the considered views of both Houses”. Hansard Column 129

Timbertecs has always supported a clear, expansive and relevant definition to be reflected in policy. As national leaders in professional building services, the issue has historically been at the forefront of our practice. Talk to us to navigate your way through the new planning system.
