Ten minute rule bill

Help

On 30 April 2014, the Liberal Democrat MP for Leeds North West, Greg Mulholland, tabled a bill under the Ten Minute Rule Motion on the National Planning Policy Framework.

His National Planning Policy Framework (Community Involvement) Bill would increase communities' powers to challenge planning decisions and the granting of building contracts.

Mr Mulholland has tabled the bill in response to concerns in his constituency that large unsustainable housing projects are being granted permission to build on greenbelt land.
