Mike Amesbury – 2020 Comments on the Developer’s Charter

The comments made by Mike Amesbury, the Shadow Housing and Planning Minister, on 5 August 2020.

This is a Developer’s Charter that will see communities side-lined in decisions and denied vital funding for building schools, clinics and community infrastructure.

These proposals will only serve to blight communities with a new wave of slum housing – the Government’s own independent report even warned of the poor quality of housing built outside the planning system.

This Government needs to build the high-quality, genuinely affordable, environmentally sustainable housing that this country desperately needs.
