Rescue says: No to environmentally damaging planning reform

Following our recent exchange of views with Sir Mark Boleat regarding his recommendations to remove archaeological planning conditions and his denial of developer ‘land-banking’ as published in a report from the Housing and Finance Initiative (cited as a government ‘think tank’), Rescue is pleased to see the Chancellor Phillip Hammond’s apparent rejection of Sir Mark’s potentially environmentally-damaging planning reform proposals in this week’s budget.

We are looking forward to working constructively with the government and others to ensure that archaeology and the other environmental issues he targeted can be incorporated into a successful planning regime.
