THE Conservatives have outlined reforms of the planning system, causing a "battle between property business giants and the Conservatives", with developers fearing the changes could create a "NIMBY's charter", according to LocalGov.co.uk.
It has been reported by LocalGov.co.uk that the Conservative Party is set to launch its policy paper on the future of the planning system, which will replace regional development plans and targets with a localised system.
Proposed changes include third party right of appeal, allowing residents to object to a decision to allow developers to build.
The proposed planning system reforms are part of a localism agenda driven by the Conservative Party.
