Housing development powers for villages
The government plans to allow villages in England to build homes without seeking council planning permission, as part of David Cameron's Big Society plan to allow more decisions to be made locally. The Campaign to Protect Rural England has said that development should remain in the hands of democratically accountable councillors and what about the archaeology? OR is it carte blanche free for all?

I did hear it had to be an 80% majority of a village in favour, however, the whole point of a planning system (however cumbersome) is to be accountable and to have wider and broader vision. Plus... as villages are often ancient settlements themselves... i will leave it there! :0
