CPRE responds to planning consultation that could spell destruction for our countryside

How much more of this can Essex take?

The government’s Changes to the Current Planning System consultation could result in a devastating assault on the Essex countryside through soaring housebuilding targets… as if they weren’t already high enough!
Now CPRE has produced its response to the consultation and you can read it here.
At almost 9,700 words, you might not want to tackle it in one sitting, but it is an important document and one we hope will cause the government to reconsider what are potentially highly damaging proposals to our countryside and indeed our way of life.
