Councils need more time to form local plans: National Trust

Ministers should extend the deadline for local authorities to formulate local development plans because more than half have still not completed them, leading conservation body the National Trust has demanded.

Peter Nixon, director of conservation at the National Trust said: “Councils need more time to get their local plans in place to protect land from unwanted development and ensure communities get the developments they need, in the right places. Only in this way can development be genuinely sustainable”
