Planning Laws

Comment 11th July 2010

Many councils now withdraw 'permitted development rights' from new homes, simply to make money from the householders when they want to do the simplest of alterations/extensions to their homes.  This law should be removed so that everybody is able to make simple alterations/extension without the need to get the council involved and line their coffers. Planning permission should not be needed for those of us who want a greener environment and wish to install solar panels or a small wind turbine. As things stand it is cost prohibited when the council need to get involved in every aspect of these matters.

Why does this matter?

Would give everybody equal opportunity to get on with alterations etc without interferrence from local authorities whose meddling makes the costs prohibitive
