Planning Bill - action that _you_ can take...

 

As you (as a reader of Rupert's read) probably know, the new Planning Bill is very bad news for taking away the rights of objecting to new nuclear proposals and such major projects as incinerators or airports, and needs to be amended. 
Here is an action which you could take to persuade MPs and Hazel Blears to support the amendments that FoE are proposing in this direction: 
 
Write to be heard
 
The new Planning Bill is about to become law, and will remove the right of communities to have a meaningful right to be heard.
This will result in a system that is undemocratic, and which makes it very hard for you to get involved in planning decisions about big projects like roads, airports and nuclear power stations being built where you live.
Write to Hazel Blears, Secretary of State for Communities and Local
Government, asking her to re-think the new Bill - see
