The Conservative Government is threatening to take away local people's right to a say on new housing developments. If the changes go through, developers could go ahead with new housing schemes, without providing extra facilities and services - or local people getting the chance to object.
In Basildon, we already have a proposed local plan that is ill thought out, with inadequate infrastructure and getting increasingly out of date.
The Liberal Democrats believe decisions about the future of our local communities across Basildon & Thurrock should be made locally - by local people – not by civil servants in London. Back our campaign today.
