Consultation response: Supporting Housing Delivery and Public Sector Infrastructure

The proposals within this consultation will have wide-reaching implications for local communities. In our response to the consultation, we outline a number of serious concerns if these proposals go ahead, and call on government to rethink.

Decision making must stay with democratically elected and accountable district councils – districts know their communities and local economies like no other and are best placed to assess and determine the likely impacts of changes. These quite radical proposals threaten districts’ ability to bring about both the high quality, sustainable and desirable housing that the country needs, and further pose a risk to districts’ ability to shape, remodel, and regenerate our town centres and high streets.
