Lord Lloyd-Webber has expressed his fears for our beautiful British countryside suffering a similar fate to the countryside in Southern Ireland and becoming a victim of uncontrolled planning.
He stated that, “The English Countryside is pretty much at saturation point now in development terms. If you want a reasonable tourism you have to have something for tourists to see – to attract them. They are not going to want to to see a whole load of semi-detached buildings or bungalows – which is what you get in Ireland,”
The new plans that are currently being considered by the Government involve reforms to the current planning system which could make it easier to build on the countryside.
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) would introduce a presumption in favour of “sustainable development” and remove the presumption that ‘brown field sites’ should be built on first.
