Government: Protect the Right of Communities to Object to Planning Applications

22 July 2021


This council believes planning works best when developers and the local community work together to shape local areas and deliver necessary new homes; and therefore calls on the government to protect the right of communities to object to individual planning applications.

The council asks the chief executive to write to the three Medway members of parliament - Kelly Tolhurst, Rehman Chishti and Tracey Crouch - to inform them of this motion and to oppose the "Developers Charter" Planning bill and for the letters and any responses to be published for residents.

On being put to the vote, the motion was carried.
