Chapter 7

Description

A UK organisation which campaigns to provide access to land for all households through environmentally sound planning. It lobbies for: firmer guidance on what distinguishes a sustainable development from an unsustainable one; policies which permit low impact and sustainable developments and/or exclude unsustainable developments; alternatives to the proliferation of car-based urban sprawl; the safeguarding of some urban land for sustainable low-profit use, including affordable housing, workshop space and yards, markets, independent shops, public transport facilities, allotments, community projects and gardens; planning policies and procedures which cater for the special needs of self-built homes and workplaces and the community provision of facilities; strengthening the public's right to appeal against major development proposals; and bringing major agricultural activities within the planning system.

Chapter 7 presses for these measures by publishing reports and newsletters, by responding to Government consultation papers, by liaising with the media, by lobbying decision-makers and local councils, by providing a planning consultancy service for low impact developments, and by publicising and supporting appropriate direct action.
