POS Expresses Great Disappointment at Abolition of Regional Strategies

Date: 28/5/2010

In response to Eric Pickles' letter of 27th May to Chief Planners on the Abolition of Regional Strategies  David Hackforth, POS President, expressed "Great disappointment that the government has taken this step without proper transition and with no provision for strategic planning."

John Silvester, Spokesperson for the Society, commented that in his opinion "in determining planning applications until such time as extant RSSs are formally expunged from the record then they stand as prevailing policy. Furthermore, the evidence  on which they are based remains valid and ought to be taken into consideration."
