Silvester Says Elements of Lib Dem Manifesto Perplexing

Date: 15/4/2015

In responding to the Liberal Democrat's manifesto John Silvester, the Society's Communications Manager, told a Planning magazine reporter that he was "perplexed" by a number of the pledges including that to update planning law to introduce the concept of 'landscape scale planning'. "I do not understand what this is supposed to mean"  said Silvester.

He added that the inrtention to boost house building towards 300,000 a year would be "very challenging" given that this level has rarely been achieved.

Silvester commented that the Society would be willing to work with whoever controls the new government to make things happen.
