Sir Oliver Heald pushes for stronger neighbourhood rights in planning matters

MP for North East Hertfordshire, Sir Oliver Heald and MPs Nick Herbert, Sir Nicholas Soames, and Dr Liam Fox tabled amendments calling for Neighbourhood Plans to be given stronger force, in a debate in the House of Commons on the Housing and Planning Bill. The amendments would have allowed a neighbourhood right of appeal where a planning permission was granted in breach of the neighbourhood plan.
