Give local councils the right to appeal planning decisions
The planning system is unfair. It is one of the few decision-making processes that gives no right of appeal to affected third parties.
The government should introduce a limited third party right of appeal by giving local (parish and town) councils a right to appeal planning decisions to the Planning Inspectorate.
Please sign this petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/110489 by 19 April 2016.
If we reach 10,000 signatures the government will have to respond to this. And if 100,000 is reached then this will be considered for debate in parliament.
