Clark must not undermine role of inspectors

Date: 12/6/2015

Greg Clark took the almost unprecedented step of intervening in a local plan examination, directing that Maldon District Council's plan be submitted to him for approval.

Catriona Riddell, Strategic Planning Specialist for the Planning Officers Society, said: "Whatever Clark decides, he must not jeopardise the independence and authority of inspectors. Their job is hard enough already and the secretary of state must not undermine their role."
