Improving housing and planning

I care passionately about preserving our beautiful landscapes, villages and towns. I’ll fight to change the planning system which puts development in the wrong places, is biased in favour of developers and ties the hands of local councillors. 

We do need to build more houses - but we won't get anywhere with a broken planning system that doesn't have people's consent.
