Discussing Planning Issues With Grant Shapps

Mark was very pleased to welcome Grant Shapps MP, the Shadow Housing Minister, to Fylde to discuss local planning issues.

Both Mark and Grant think it is vitally important to restore planning powers to local communities in Fylde, rather than the current situation under Labour where unelected regional bureaucrats play a huge role in deciding how much development is required in Fylde.

Under a future Conservative government, the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS), which dictates how many houses each local authority is required to plan for, would be scrapped and powers returned to local communities.
