Pro-Growth Localism 2

As if on cue, watch Planning Magazine’s interview with Richard McCarthy, the civil servant in charge of Localism. 

It seems the key to planning policy will remain the “local plan” (presumably the LDF in the absence of anything else!).  Neighbourhood Plans will simply add “colour” and possibly “go further” in terms of greater growth than set out in the Local Plan. 

Kind of confirms my take on the Coalition’s real approach to Localism.
