It will save Councils money!
At present there is still a requirement for some applications – particularly listed building applications and planning applications in conservation areas – to be advertised in local newspapers. This is a ridiculous unnecessary bureacratic requirement that costs Councils lots of money. Such adverts could be on their web sites. This should be repealed. The previous government bottled it because they were lobbied by the regional newspaper groups. let's hope the neww Coalition will be braver.
