On 13th December 2010 the Government announced its Localism Bill. This was the first stage in an important process which over the next few years will see the structure of the planning system being ‘radically’ reformed.
How the Localism Bill and the changes in the planning system impact on the preparation of the Mole Valley Local Development Framework (LDF) is an extremely important issue for the Council and its communities. The Council has therefore prepared a Discussion Paper outlining a number of key issues that need to be considered.
The Council is seeking views on this Paper from Friday 4th March until Friday 8th April 2011. The Discussion Paper and Comments Form can be downloaded from www.molevalley.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=11716
Also there will be a longer article on Localism by our Chairman in the LRA Spring Newsletter. Please read it.
