I propose that planning appeals be abolished. Local councils are afraid to make the right decision that is of benefit to the local area on planning applications because of the threat of costs of an appeal.

Local planning decisions should be made locally  – no appeals.

Why is this idea important?

People have a right to have input on the way their local area develops. If there council is emasculated by planning appeals comprised of unelected civil servants, that does not happen.
