GOVERNMENT DELAYS ON ECO-TOWN

by simongalton on 20 August, 2008

It has been reported in the Financial Times yesterday that the government has hinted that the decision regarding eco-towns will be delayed till next year.

Simon Galton believes that this is an example of how local pressure has put pressure on the housing minister to carefully consider what the government intends to do:

“The obvious fact is that the governments assessments of proposals are taking longer than previously thought. This gives local people an opportunity to keep putting pressure and making their views known – the government should take this opportunity to review the undemocratic methods they are using and establish guaranteeĀ to ensure that local authorities truly have the last say on this”
