Francis Maude - dubbed 'Mad Frankie" by Mr Fawkes - had this to say about the National Trust and planning:
"No. I mean, our position is right. I think this idea, that creating a presumption in favour of sustainable development is somehow a massive erosion of the ability to conserve, is bollocks, frankly."
As we've said before, there is current a presumption in favour of any kind of development (it's in the original 1947 Act). Under the changes there will be a presumption in favour of sustainable development.
Precisely how much of a change is that?
