Planners aren't anti-business. Oh no...


Both Civic Voice and the RTPI are concerned that government amendments to the Localism Bill in May, which would allow neighbourhood forums to be created solely for "promoting the carrying on of trades, professions or other businesses in such an area", will give business too much power to create neighbourhood plans to suit their needs other those of local communities.

Got that folks - the planning system cannot be used positively to promote business - or that's what the Royal Town Planning Institute want. And they say they're not anti-business?
