Government Action on Councils Failing to Plan New Homes

As trailed in the Prime Minister's housing speech in early March, Sajid Javid has written to 15 councils, including Thanet, to inform them of his decision to intervene following failure to produce a local plan.  Thanet's Local Plan was rejected by Councillors in the last few weeks.  Consequently the Government's Chief Planner and a team of experts will be sent in to assess if the Government needs to take over the process of producing the local plan.
