POS says Presumption in Favour of Sustainable Development will Encourage LPAs to take a More Proactive Approach

Date: 15/6/2011

In response to the Government's announcement regarding the "presumption in favour of sustainable development" John Silvester, Spokesperson for POS, told Property Week "This new presumption in favour of sustainable development  will encourage local authorities to take a much more proactive approach to development than hitherto. They will need to ensure that they have local plans in place, that they are always up to date, and that they deal with all the key issues relevant to their area; and furthermore that they adopt a development management approach encouraging the right development in the right place at the right time."
