Tory MPs must be prepared to make difficult calls even if unpopular

Date: 21/10/2016

Planning magazine reports that communities secretary Sajid Javid said local and national politicians "must be prepared to make difficult calls, even if they're unpopular" to ensure sufficient homes.

"He should be making sure Conservative MPs are toeing that line as well, otherwise they are putting their local authorities in a very difficult position," said Planning Officers Society strategic planning specialist Catriona Riddell. This comment was made in the light of planning minister Gavin Barwell ordering Bradford City to take no further steps on the new core strategy until his officials had scrutinised it.
