To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to change planning law to give control of decisions to Government-owned development corporations instead of local councils; whether they have established a panel to consider such plans and other changes to planning law; and if so, what is that panel's (1) terms of reference, and (2) membership. [T]

I recognise the importance of Local Government’s role in creating sustainable communities across the country. We value their relationship with local communities and the work they have done to ensure high quality development is delivered where it is needed. We have set out an ambitious programme to modernise our planning system. Our “Planning for the Future” reforms will support the delivery of homes that local people need and create greener communities with more beautiful homes. We look forward to saying more on this in the near future.
