The Alliance makes representation on the Local Plan-making process
The Alliance, through its Spatial Planning Advocacy Group, has today [27 June] submitted written evidence to a Select Committee inquiry into the Local Plan-making process.
The Communities and Local Government Committee is conducting an inquiry into recommendations made by the Local Plan Expert Group to the Department for Communities and Local Government. In addition to placing a statutory duty on Local Plan-making, The Alliance is urging Government to go further and place Historic Environment Records similarly on a statutory basis. The Alliance will be writing to Clive Betts MP, chair of the CLG Select Committee, on this point.
A round-up of responses to the inquiry will be published in a forthcoming issue of Heritage Update, once submissions have been published by the Committee.
