Planning proposals spark anxiety


David Cameron recently announced plans to introduce a year-long relaxation of planning rules which would enable homeowners and businesses to extend their properties by up to 8 metres without seeking prior permission. However, rather than the plans being met with the positive response he had hoped for, a poll commissioned by the Royal Institute of British Architects suggests that most people actually fear that such measures will result in an unwelcome splurge of unchecked building works that will blight the communities they live in.  Meanwhile, the planning minister has also put a dampener on the plans by admitting that they could not force local councils to adopt the policy.  Back to the drawing board?
