Planning

housing-gleadless-flatsWe beleive that cities should be planned to meet the needs of the people who live and work in them. We aim for mixed communities which have work, shops and schools, closer to home. The planning process must be democratic.

The public should be given the same power as developers to appeal against planning consents. Conditions attached to consents must be enforced. Instead of bland high rises, commercial, public and residential buildings should be designed or improved to be flexible, people-friendly, longer-lasting and energy-efficient. New, large buildings must have maximum sustainability using renewable energy and local materials if possible.

Local Green Party campaigns often involve battles with developers. Visit the Council planning website to see what is happening in your area.
