This month the Group submitted its response to the Right Homes in the Right Places consultation. While the consultation is an important step to ensure that housing is delivered where it is needed, the Group is concerned that the current approach does not emphasise the importance of putting nature at the heart of planning, to provide quality homes and communities.
The Group also met with the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), discussing the capacity within Local Authorities for ecological and archaeological expertise, Brexit implications on planning legislation, and the upcoming review of the National Planning Policy Framework.
