Government’s new planning framework could slip backwards on climate change? Consultation – can you or your organisation add your voice before 10th May?

‘Why the government’s new planning framework shouldn’t water down action on climate change’.

There is currently a public Government consultation in progress on the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) that lasts until 10th May 2018.

But, according to CSE: ‘Sadly, the government has missed the opportunity to set planning an ambitious agenda for cutting carbon. Or at least in this draft. If enough of us say ‘not good enough’ then we must hope government will listen.’

Details are set out in downloadable pdf format: why-govt-shouldnt-water-down-action-on-climate-change.

The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) in Bristol is an independent national charity that shares knowledge and experience to help people change the way they think and act on energy.

The GlosCAN Steering Group supports CSE’s plea for anyone concerned about climate change to respond to the consultation via this link: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NPPFconsultation or by email
